An independent and discrete part of the UL organization—with no crossover to UL's Certification Services—Advisory Services helps manufacturers execute the front-end preparatory work that minimizes rework when it comes to meeting certification standards and greatly increases first pass yield.

In today’s increasingly competitive business environment, the windows to market are smaller, more precise, and played out on a global scale. Opportunities emerge and disappear with surprising speed. To succeed in this volatile milieu, manufacturers must accelerate product development, effectively manage evolving regulatory demands, and minimize risks. If they do these things, they gain competitive advantage. Work with UL, and they are more likely to succeed.

For over a century, UL has been the gold standard in product testing and certification. Today, that standard remains intact; no other organization has the global reach, depth of resources, and industry-specific safety expertise that UL brings to its customers every day.

UL Advisory Services helps manufacturers execute the front-end preparatory work that minimizes rework when it comes to meeting certification standards and greatly increases first pass yield.

• Validation Plans
