In order to enhance the industrial supply chain to be able to face markets with increasingly complex regulations, Tecnolab del Lago Maggiore has identified in UL, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. the most suitable resource to achieving this scope.
UL is an independent organization of safety certifications, developes standards and tests on products, materials, components and tools, with particular regard to safety.
UL also evaluates and certifies the productive efficiency of a company, through a management analysis program.
Tecnolab del Lago Maggiore is able to add the right technical expertise which is a guarantee of impartiality for the benefit of its customers. Tecnolab developes its own activity in four main technological fields: electromagnetic compatibility and electrical safety, mechanical sector, material sector and automotive.
The two companies can be considered as a reference in two complementary areas; this allows to offer not only a wider range of tests, but also additional services to a rich industrial network which is projected toward international markets and oriented to technology, innovation and sustainability and to a circular economy new approach, that needs a quick and efficient assessment of safety and conformity of its solutions.

• ASME A112.18.1/CSA B125.1 Plumbing Supply Fittings
• ASME A112.18.6/CSA B125.6 Flexible Water Connectors
• NSF/ANSI Standard 372: Drinking Water System Components – Lead Content: The instrument in our possession, optical emission spectrometer (EOS), allows us to determine lead only in metal components and not in plastic components.
