What is UL ?

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is a global safety certification company. UL helps companies to demonstrate safety, enhance sustainability, strengthen security, deliver quality, manage risk and achieve regulatory compliance. 

UL 2900-1 is a security evaluation standard with general product requirements. It is called “Software Cybersecurity for Network-Connectable Products-General Requirements”. UL 2900-1 covers evaluations and tests of network-connectable devices as it relates to vulnerabilities, malware and software weaknesses. The standard applies to the testing of network connected components of healthcare systems. In tandem with the FDA’s recognition, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has adopted UL 2900-1 as a national consensus Standard. Medical device manufacturers can demonstrate that they meet FDA guidance through compliance with the specified UL Standard.
