UL’s Safety and Performance Laboratory

Introducing UL’s New Combined Performance and Safety Lab in Orange County, California

UL’s Orange County (OC) performance laboratory, formerly on Imperial Hwy in Brea, California, is now twice its size due to its recent consolidation with UL’s safety laboratory, also located in Brea on Lambert Road. Combining the laboratories allows for increased testing capabilities, customer service efficiencies and deeper collaboration between UL’s safety and performance teams. With this move comes expanded space — from 18,000 square feet to 38,0000 — and more convenience for UL customers.
