Groups Join Forces to Expand Global Reach for Fire, Security Manufacturers

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recently signed a bi-lateral agreement with Bodycote Warringtonfire, based in Warrington, Cheshire, England, to offer globally expanded fire safety services to manufacturers.

The initial scope of the alliance helps fire and security manufacturers to gain UL Listing, CERTIFIRE certification and/or certification in support of CE marking. Additionally, each organization will accept the others test data and provide for surveillance and follow-up inspections services as needed in connection with listing or certification of the products.

"We are pleased to be able to expand our global capabilities for our fire and security customers, enabling both UL and Bodycote Warringtonfire manufacturer clients more options in testing their products locally," said Chris Hasbrook, vice president and General Manager for UL's Fire Safety and Security sector.

"Both UL and Bodycote Warringtonfire share the same strong commitment to responding to the individual needs of our clients," said Tim Cornes, Bodycote Warringtonfire's Divisional Director. "Entering into this joint agreement we believe will help further drive that goal globally."

The alliance will enable the services and capabilities of either organization to be offered from more local offices and laboratories. It will help the organizations provide more efficient global access through testing, inspection and certification services.

Initially, the organizations will focus on commonly provided services relating to products such as steelwork protection, fire resisting doors, fire resisting glass, fire protection boards and architectural hardware.

In the future, Bodycote Warringtonfire and UL hope to extend this alliance to expand service offerings for all fire safety products.
