UL Unveils New Testing Laboratory in India

UL announced the opening of its first facility dedicated to water testing and certification outside the United States. Located in Bangalore, India, it allows the organization to offer a full portfolio of globally recognized and trusted services to a key emerging market that is devoted to addressing sustainable water issues.

UL is staffing the new laboratory with local experts who have a robust knowledge of the Indian water market and are experienced with local and international water standards and requirements. Through this lab, UL will further benefit Indian water product manufacturers looking to enter global markets by having access to international water industry standards from a global leader in safety.

Mr. Venkitachalam, vice president and managing director, UL Emerging Markets, stated, “With India facing significant water challenges, the addition of this laboratory to UL’s portfolio of services is a key strategic platform for our growth in this market.”

The new facility is equipped to conduct a wide variety of chemical and microbiological testing using state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation from leading manufacturers. In addition to providing commercial drinking water analytical services, the laboratory will also support the certification of drinking water treatment chemicals to ANSI/NSF 60 and drinking water components to ANSI/NSF 61.

“India is a strong, emerging market with critical water quality issues that UL has studied and tested for years,” said Jeff Smith, general manager, UL Global Water Business. “By expanding our network of testing locations, we are committed to driving solutions for safer water around the globe.”

In 2009, UL first launched its drinking water product certification program in India to serve the market locally with its extensive industry and analytical knowledge. Since then, it has established relationships with a significant number of companies on a broad range of products and services and expects this group will grow dramatically in the coming years.
