UL (Underwriters Laboratories) has announced a new UL plumbing mark for the certification of plumbing-related products that demonstrate compliance with plumbing codes used throughout the U. S.
 
The new UL plumbing mark is a listing mark that better serves the needs of manufacturers, users, installers, regulators, and consumers by clearly identifying plumbing products that comply with all requisite health-effect and performance standards and product requirements. Products bearing the mark are deemed suitable for use in accordance with both the International Plumbing Code (IPC) and the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC).
 
UL’s announcement of the new mark is significant because manufacturers can now obtain a single certification listing to demonstrate product compliance nationwide from the most widely used, trusted and recognized safety certification organization in North America.
 
The UL plumbing mark will be rolled out in phases, with the long-term intent of using the mark for all plumbing products, including plumbing appliances. This mark will first appear on products covered under the category Plumbing Fixture Fittings. This product category includes faucets for lavatories, faucets with pullout spouts and side sprays, hand-held showers, pressure-balanced valves, and thermostatic mixing valves.
