NOW was one of the first companies to be certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for our dietary supplement manufacturing process. The purpose of the UL® National Brand Certification Program (NBCP) is to assess the extent to which an organization conforms to the applicable regulations and/or standards regarding the products being manufactured.
In 2018, NOW achieved UL Enhanced Certification for our entire line of cosmetics (ISO 221716:20017), and our entire line of natural foods achieved UL’s Safe Quality Food (SQF) Certification.
Whether it’s the sourcing of quality ingredients or comprehensive and sophisticated testing throughout the manufacturing process, NOW has always been committed to industry-leading quality.
Both NOW’s Bloomingdale, Illinois and Sparks, Nevada facilities have been audited and certified by UL. Each facility will undergo a surveillance audit annually prior to renewal.
The UL seal is well-known to many consumers and is widely regarded as an indicator of a manufacturer’s commitment to quality. NOW has always been transparent about the steps we take to ensure product quality, so having UL certification is an easily recognizable symbol that lets consumers know we’ve been scrutinized and thoroughly audited, and we meet the highest standards.
