Zigbee adds UL as independent test service provider

September 13, 2016 – The ZigBee Alliance, a non-profit association of companies creating, maintaining and delivering open, global standards for the low-power wireless Internet of Things (IoT), announced UL – a global safety science organization – as an independent authorized test service provider accredited to support ZigBee Alliance certification programs. UL will offer ZigBee testing at two of its labs: Fremont, California and Basingstoke, UK. 

To date, authorized test service providers for the ZigBee Alliance have provided testing services leading to over 1600 certified products, with 75% of those earning certification in the past three years alone. Already in 2016, over 200 products have achieved certified product status.

The ZigBee Certified program verifies that every platform and product meets Alliance requirements and performs as expected – helping to ensure interoperable products are available to manufacturers and end users. This supports the critical next step in the market: enabling consumers to buy with confidence. The certification program is a substantial benefit of ZigBee Alliance membership, and contributes to the Alliance’s leading market position as a proven and trusted technology for smart wireless development.

In addition to UL, ZigBee Alliance authorized test service providers include:

  • Chinese Electronics Standardization Institute (CESI)
  • Element Materials Technology
  • National Technical Systems, Inc. (NTS)
  • TÜV Rheinland Group
