With increased consumer, media and regulatory attention on foodborne illness outbreaks and food product recalls, delivering safe food products is essential to your brand, your business and, most importantly, your customer.
UL’s product safety evaluations provide a comprehensive review of important safety issues such as electrical shock, fire hazards, mechanical stability, strength and integrity. This inclusive approach gives retailers, authorities having jurisdiction, and consumers confidence that certified furniture meets the appropriate safety standards.
UL also offers design evaluations and safety assessments, restricted substances evaluations, testing for small-part choking hazards and sharp point and edge assessments. Our flammability evaluations test for the ignition, flame-spread and heat-release characteristics of mattresses, bedding, upholstery and other furnishings.
UL sanitation certification indicates that representative samples of equipment used for food preparation and storage, and in food service establishments, have been tested and were found to meet applicable environmental and public health standards.
UL is a single source for multiple appliance industry services, including electrical safety, food equipment sanitation, gas appliance certification and energy efficiency. Working with UL can consolidate multiple services with one organization to more efficiently meet certification needs. UL has decades of experience with trained staff on three continents.
The UL EPH Mark is recognized and accepted in all U.S. states and Canadian provinces as a trusted source for assessing the sanitary design, construction and performance of commercial food equipment.
