"While the brands signify a new era for each of our organizations, we share a history and the UL and Underwriters Laboratories names, which are synonymous with safety science leadership. Our brands may be evolving, but our commitment to working for a safer world is constant."
The UL enterprise confronts safety challenges head-on, turning questions and hypotheses into discoveries, and innovating to ensure that scientific knowledge is applied.

While the logos for the organizations have been updated to reflect the new brands, the existing UL Certification Marks, which signal high-quality performance and independent third-party safety, security and sustainability certification, will remain unchanged.
