About the UL Testing Approval Procedure: 

Testing 1

Underwriters Laboratories® (UL) partners with manufacturers to provide safe products to consumers through UL testing, certification and follow-up audits. UL’s Data Acceptance Program (DAP) provides a means for UL to accept externally generated test data in support of UL Mark certification. Product investigations by UL typically involve testing of product samples. While UL maintains extensive test facilities, customers can also utilize their own or third-party facilities for product testing via UL’s DAP.

Participating test facilities are required to have the appropriate physical resources, equipment and qualified personnel needed to conduct testing, equivalent to what would be used in UL’s own laboratories for the same testing. UL offers five different types of data acceptance programs. Allied Moulded Products, Inc. is certified through the Client Test Data Program (CTDP).

After a data acceptance program is established, UL will reassess a test laboratory annually. All data submitted is thoroughly reviewed and audited by UL before being used for certification.
