UL Launches Performance Claim Mark for Verifying Aerosol Removal Efficiency in the Built Environment

UL has launched the UL Verified Ventilation and Filtration program. An assessment and verification program combining a comprehensive desktop review with field verification of ventilation and filtration performance via SafeTraces’ patented aerosol tracing technology, the program will measure the real-world performance of ventilation and filtration for aerosol removal rate in the built environment.

“Now more than ever, the public is seeking transparency regarding ventilation, filtration and other engineering controls critical to ensuring a healthy and safe environment,” said SafeTraces CEO Erik Malmstrom. “Moreover, building owners are seeking to verify the performance of HVAC systems, to strengthen public trust, confidence and peace of mind and to competitively differentiate properties based on health and wellness. The program powerfully meets the expectations of both sides by leveraging market-leading science and technology.”

The UL Verified Ventilation and Filtration program is being introduced as health concerns about reoccupying shared spaces remain at an all-time high.

“The importance of the indoor environment to human health continues to be a top concern as communities return to shared spaces,” said Sean McCrady, UL’s director of Asset and Sustainability, Real Estate and Properties group at UL. “The UL Verified Ventilation and Filtration Mark empowers building operators and owners to harness the power of science to clearly and concisely communicate a building’s aerosol removal rate, while fueling trust with building occupants.”
