Certification by Similarity

If you have multiple products with similar functionality (e.g. different colors or shapes) but with different model numbers, the Certification by Similarity (CbS) program may allow you to certify a single Primary Device and have all applicable variant devices certified at no additional cost, saving you time, money, and effort.

If your device and its variants qualify, only the Primary Device will be required to be shipped to UL for testing. If you believe your products qualify for Certification by Similarity, please contact our team after submitting your products for certification.

Hub Connected Devices may qualify if they contain the same:
  • Brand
  • Device Firmware Version
  • Edge Driver Profile, including the same sub-driver if applicable

All devices must be submitted through the Console regardless of whether they qualify for CbS.
