Underwriters Laboratories launches wellness certification

First certification program that verifies products’ compliance with the WELL Building Standard.

November 07, 2017 |

UL Environment, a division of UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.), says it has developed the first certification program that verifies products’ compliance with the WELL Building Standard.

The certification will signal to architects, designers, and specifiers that certified products such as furniture, interior paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, insulation, and lighting comply with requirements of the WELL Building Standard. The product designation will help projects achieve certification.

The Wellness Certification program uses data-driven assessments to evaluate products for characteristics such as product emissions, ergonomics, and chemical and material transparency. UL’s Wellness Certification requires each product to meet applicable pre-conditions listed in the WELL Building Standard.

Design professionals can access complete product certification details on UL’s SPOT database, which features more than 50,000 products that have been certified or validated to industry standards. Certified products will bear the UL Certification Mark and have publicly available certificates that can be used for WELL Building project documentation.
