UL Establishes Performance and Energy Efficiency Testing Center of Excellence In Brea, California

UL, a global safety science organization, plans to officially open its new 19,000-square-foot laboratory in January 2016, located in Brea, California.

According to company officials, state-of-the-art UL Performance and Energy Efficiency Testing Center of Excellence, which opened its doors for testing in November, allows UL to provide more responsive and efficient service to regional customers in the western United States.

The lab provides performance and quality assurance testing for the entire lighting industry supply chain, from designer and specifier to manufacturer and retailer. Tests of lighting products (such as Illuminating Engineering Society LM-79) are conducted to, and in support of, various global energy-efficiency programs such as Energy Star, DesignLights Consortium, LED Lighting Facts, California Energy Commission, and National Resources Canada.

This Brea lab complements UL's other North American Lighting Performance Center of Excellence (COE) in Allentown, Pennsylvania, as well as UL's other global Lighting Performance labs in China, Italy and India that each provide high-quality evaluations of LED product performance.
