ULC certifications and ULC Evaluation Reports provide the technical foundation relied upon by architects, designers, contractors and code authorities to provide safe, code compliant installations.
Recognized by Canadian Building Code Authorities
Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) have grown to depend on third-party product evaluation reports for technical evidence that alternative material, product, design or method of construction comply with the intent of the building codes. ULC’s technical experts have full involvement in the code development process and complete knowledge of the product and test standards referenced within the codes.
An invaluable tool for your innovative products
The ULC Evaluation Reports provide technical assessments and guidance to AHJs, architects, designers, contractors, installers and other Built Environment Influencers. The ULC Evaluation Reports are based on the requirements in the model installation codes, as well as other standardized requirements.
They serve as a bridge between product testing and code compliance where:
- A new or innovative product is not included in the model building code
- The model building code does not identify specific and clear requirements for the product
- The model building code has multiple requirements for the product not covered by a single standard, or
- The manufacturer of the product requires product data validation from a third party
