Insuranceopedia explains Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC)

Product safety is a very significant issue in insurance because a faulty or unsafe product can result in an injury that costs companies and insurers millions of dollars through lawsuits. For example, a company that manufactures a defective computer model that randomly explodes could quickly find itself facing many personal injury lawsuits. The Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada functions as a sort of quality control measure for products and its approval can be used by business insurers as a mark of insurability.
