When it comes to fireproof safes and a multitude of other products (19,597 types of products in 2009) the company responsible for product testing, safety and rating is UL. UL is a massive global company that operates independent of manufacturers and offers their expertise in five specific and key areas for business, these include: Environment, Life & Health, University and Verification Services and most importantly to fireproof safes, Product Safety.
UL boasts some amazing statistics as a company in 2009 over 20 billion UL logos appeared on products around the world and 66,149 different manufacturers produced products that received UL certification. There are 120 UL inspection centers around the world and 102 countries with UL customers. Perhaps the most impressive of statistics is that 1.5 billion consumers were influenced by UL with safety messages in Asia, Europe and North America (Almost 25% of the global population!).
When it comes to purchasing fireproof home safes one would be advised to look for products that are not just tested by UL but are also verified / certified. Manufacturers are not required to submit their products to UL for testing, but those that do are the ones I would trust and recommend. In addition there are multitudes of products that are submitted and tested by UL but fail to measure up. One must specifically look for products that have UL certification / verification.
