ULC Programs

A ULC or UL mark on a product means that ULC or UL has tested and evaluated representative samples of that product and determined that they meet ULC/UL’s requirements. In addition, products are periodically checked by ULC/UL at the manufacturing facility to make sure they continue to meet ULC and/or UL requirements.

There are several types of UL and ULC Marks. Each has its own specific meaning and significance. The only way to determine if a product has been certified by UL or ULC is to look for the UL and /or the ULC Mark on the product itself. In a few instances, the UL or ULC Mark may be present only on the packaging of a product.

The ULC Mark may be only used on or in connection with products certified by ULC and under the terms of written agreement with ULC.
