• Certification Process

  • Once a manufacturer initiates the GREENGUARD Certification process, UL Environment works closely with the manufacturer to develop a specialized certification plan that takes into account each their unique product line, manufacturing process and certification goals. A technical account manager provides dedicated customer service throughout the certification process to ensure efficiency and availability for day-to-day concerns. 

    Though the exact timeline depends on the complexity of the product, number of manufacturing locations and number of Test Groups, the following timeline provides an approximate outline for the product certification process.
