Facility will provide testing and certification services

UL announced the opening of its first facility dedicated to water testing and certification outside the United States. Located in Bangalore, India, the facility will offer a full portfolio of services to a key emerging market.

UL is staffing the new laboratory with local experts who have knowledge of the Indian water market and are experienced with local and international water standards and requirements.

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. Since then, it has established relationships with a variety of companies on a broad range of products and services and expects this group will grow in the coming years.
