Types of ULC publications

ULC Standards

What is a Standard?

A standard is a document established by consensus that provides rules, guidelines or characteristics for products, services or systems. Simple things we take for granted, from traffic signals to units of measurement, are the same from one place to another, thanks to standards.


What is an ORD?

Other Recognized Documents (ORDs) are documents developed when a Canadian recognized standard does not cover a new product to be certified. ORDs provide safety and performance criteria at an equivalent level to existing standards for products with similar functions. ORDs are developed by a certification organization and submitted to the regulatory councils in Canada, which are authorities having jurisdiction for the product or service to be certified. For unregulated industries, ORDs are submitted to the appropriate industry association(s) for consideration of acceptability prior to being used for certification. The development process for an ORD is usually faster than the development of a National Standard of Canada; typically 3 to 6 months, and is used to get new technologies to market quickly and safely. Certification of the product will not go forward until all ORD-related concerns of the regulators and others are addressed. The cost of development of an ORD is borne by the manufacturer or regulator requesting the ORD.

ULC Directories (Lists of Equipment and Materials)

What is a listing?

ULC Equipment and Materials Directories are invaluable resources, used to determine the correct application of a product or system. Directories contain the names of companies qualified to use a ULC Mark on products that comply with appropriate Canadian requirements.

Architects, engineers, specifiers, developers, authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs), purchasing agents and others turn to ULC’s Directories as a key resource to find Listed products that meet specific Building and Fire Code criteria, standards, and other important design information about products bearing the ULC Mark.

Having a product Listed in a ULC Directory instantly puts it in front of hundreds of key decision makers. ULC provides free online access to ULC Listings, in addition to publishing Listing directories and standards documents in print.

By providing several options, we are meeting our customers’ needs for effective and rapid access to information.
