Factory Inspection

Overview

UL factory inspections provide customized product inspection support, based on customers' predefined parameters or customer-accepted specifications. These inspections provide retailers, buyers and original equipment manufacturers confidence in the quality of the suppliers that they work with as well as the reliability of the products that are sourced from these suppliers.

Definition

Factory inspections are conducted to ascertain whether certified products produced in the facility are identical, within accepted manufacturing tolerances, to the sample against which the product certification was granted. Inspection services include initial production inspection, during-process inspection, final random inspection and packing supervision.
