UL Wellness Certification

Overview

In a world where conditions like obesity, asthma, inactivity, and depression are reaching epidemic levels, wellness is becoming a priority in building standards like the WELL Building Standard. UL’s Wellness Certification evaluates products that are used in buildings every day to demonstrate they support wellness.

Definition

UL’s Wellness Certification is the first certification program that helps demonstrate a product’s contribution to requirements in the WELL Building Standard, a program advancing health and well-being in buildings globally. The Wellness Certification program uses data-driven assessments to evaluate products for characteristics such as product emissions, ergonomics and chemical and material transparency. UL’s Wellness Certification requires each product to meet the applicable requirements listed in the WELL Building Standard, and can evaluate additional criteria as requested. UL uses metrics-based assessments to evaluate products. Manufacturers receive a report, certificate and permission to use the UL Wellness Certified mark on their products. The mark includes a QR code that links to the manufacturer’s product page, and is also featured in SPOT, UL’s online product guide for comprehensive certified product information, with detailed information about the certification.

Benefits

Manufacturers who earn the UL Wellness Certification differentiate their products and provide validation from a trusted third party that their products support human health and well-being.  In addition, Wellness Certification will enable architects, designers, specifiers and building owners to easily identify products that meet the concepts of  wellness in buildings. By delivering products to market that support human health and wellness, companies can also differentiate their product in the marketplace. Certification provides peace of mind from a source trusted for more than 100 years: UL.
