UL certification is coming to the data center. UL, the international safety consulting company, is now offering UL 3223, a comprehensive certification program that looks at all aspects of performance and safety in the data center.

“Our ultimate goal for UL 3223 is to help make data centers more resilient,” says Paul Schlattman, Senior Vice President, Practice Leader at ESD Consulting, a division of ESD Global that provides development and M&A services for mission critical facilities, which is partnering with UL to develop the certification. “By undertaking a UL 3223 evaluation, data center owners can certify the areas where they have the most efficiency, and identify the areas where they need to make improvements. If they achieve UL 3223 certification, they can point to that as a mark of excellence for their facilities.”
