UL Question Corner — Introducing the UL Product IQ Database


I tried accessing UL’s Online Certifications Directory and was redirected to UL Product iQ database requiring registration. Has UL’s Online Certifications Directory been replaced by UL Product iQ? Is access to the replacement database still free?


Yes. UL Product iQ database is the next generation of UL’s Online Certifications Directory and access to it is free. UL Product iQ—located at https://productiq.ul.com or http://www.ul.com/database—contains the same trusted UL certification information in a modern, user-friendly database. Creating a free account and logging in is only required on your initial visit. You will remain logged in unless you log out or disable or clear your cookies.

UL Product iQ Overview

UL Product iQ offers the best of UL’s Online Certifications Directory and UL Product Spec, all in a single database for the U.S., Canada and the rest of the world. The intuitive guided keyword search allows you to search by almost any criteria in one field. Search by UL file number, product type, CCN (category code), fire-resistive design or assembly number or even a model number. Just enter your term in the keyword search and then select from the guided suggestions to expedite your search. You can also refine your results further to target exactly what you need.

You can identify UL Certified (Listed) products that meet a specific section of a model installation code by selecting building materials and systems from the iQ Plus Search Tools on the main search page and access the Installation Code Search. In addition, there are parametric searches for Electrical Circuit Integrity Systems (FHIT) as well as hourly rated fire resistive designs, assemblies and through penetration firestops systems.

Product iQ also offers upgraded account access that gives you the ability to save searches, tag content and searches, receive notifications as well as access to create UL confirmation letters for evidence of compliance. If you are an authority having jurisdiction (AHJ), access to an upgraded account is free. When registering as an AHJ, additional verification may be necessary.

Product iQ can be saved to the home screen on your mobile device to provide immediate access to all UL Certification (Listing) information in the field where you need it. Go to https://productiq.ul.com and register today!

Now that UL Product iQ has been enhanced to include the search capability of UL Product Spec, we plan to retire UL Product Spec as a standalone database in the first quarter of 2020.
