UL and ICC Evaluation Service Announce New
Dual Evaluation and Certification Program for Building Products
December 16, 2009
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and ICC Evaluation Service Inc.®
(ICC-ES®) announced a partnership recently that will provide
the building materials industry with a dual evaluation and certification
program for building products. Together, the UL Mark and the ICC-ES
Mark will demonstrate to tens of thousands of regulators, building
officials, architects and insurers that the building products and
systems they inspect, design and insure are compliant with appropriate
codes and product safety standards, according to a press release
The dual evaluation and certification program simplifies the testing
and evaluation process for manufacturers. They now have an easier
way of conducting business. Through one point of contact for both
UL and ICC-ES, manufacturers can conduct testing to UL safety standards,
show code compliance via an ICC-ES Evaluation Report and get simultaneous
postings of compliant products in UL's Online Certifications Directory
and Code Correlation Database along with ICC-ES's online directory
of evaluation reports and e-Codes Premium.
