Welcome to the Compliance Zone

This is our self-service website to provide our customers with the ability to download documents to obtain the trust and confidence in who we are as UL.


On May 25, 2018, a new landmark privacy regulation called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in the European Union (EU). The GDPR expands the privacy rights granted to EU individuals, and it places many new obligations on organizations that handle EU personal data, no matter where an organization is located. This page contains important information on UL’s GDPR process and resources to help our clients comply with the regulation.

What is GDPR?

A new comprehensive data protection regulation in the EU that updates existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data in light of rapid technological developments, increased globalization, and more complex international flows of personal data. It replaces the patchwork of national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state.

The following documents are available on the portal for your review:

  • GDPR Whitepaper
  • GDPR Vendor List (Request through form)
  • We also make available a pre-signed Data Processing Addendum clients can execute to get the GDPR-required contractual terms in place with us. Simply print, counter-sign and email it to us at ulehss@ul.com. Our US offices are Privacy Shield certified, allowing lawful transfer of EU personal data to our servers in the US.
  • UL’s Privacy Shield certification is available here
