UL’s new European Security Laboratory
for Access Control and Security Devices
UL presents the gateway to European and global market
acceptance from one central location in Europe.
Centrally located in Frankfurt, Germany, UL’s new Security Laboratory for access control and security
devices brings it all together for European security equipment manufacturers. A single product
submission is all it takes for security and access device manufacturers to achieve worldwide market
access – Europe, North America and beyond.
Speed time-to-market
• The UL Security Lab can assess access
Security testing and certification in Frankfurt serves the specific needs of European
customers seeking to streamline access to markets in Europe, or successfully launch
their products in the Americas, Asia, and the Middle East. Using the UL lab in Frankfurt,
manufacturers can benefit from comprehensive on-site testing for a range of security
requirements, as well as from the simplicity of using a single organization offering
comprehensive services.
