Underwriters Laboratories expands its European testing capabilities

Published:  24 February, 2010

UL has joined forces with SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden to provide testing for the CE Mark.

Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) announced today that UL UK, a Notified Body to the Construction Products Directive, has signed an agreement with SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden. The agreement with SP allows UL UK and UL’s family of companies to expand its European testing capabilities and bolsters both its CE Marking Services and global market access.
The alliance with SP expands UL’s current capabilities to test and certify to a wider range of European standards. Specifically, UL UK, as a Notified Body to the Construction Products Directive, will utilize SP’s test facilities for testing to a variety of EN and ETAG standards in the areas of fire resistance and fire alarm & detection covered within UL UK’s scope of services. Following successful testing, as part of the attestation process, UL UK can issue the CE Certificate of Compliance, needed by manufacturers for their products to bear the CE marking.
"We are excited about our alliance with SP," said Chris Hasbrook, UL’s Vice President of Building Materials and Systems/Life Safety and Security. "SP, another well respected name in Fire Safety, provides the UL team with expanded testing services in Europe and enables us to provide better service and more options for our customers."
