Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. announced that the organization has earned approval as a third-party certification body for the federal ENERGY STAR® energy efficiency program. Effective January 1, 2011, ENERGY STAR will require that any product seeking program participation have their energy performance validated by a third-party certifier prior to product labeling and undergo post-market verification testing to validate continuing energy performance.

"UL is committed to supporting the EPA and the Department of Energy in strengthening ENERGY STAR’s reputation for energy performance," said Stephen Wenc, president of UL Environment. "Accredited third-party validation improves the integrity of claims made under the program’s umbrella, giving consumers further confidence in the validity of energy efficiency claims."
