USG Awarded First ICC-ES and UL Dual Certification
February 26, 2010

ICC Evaluation Service, Inc. (ICC-ES) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL), announced that one of the leading building product manufacturers, United States Gypsum Co. (USG), is the first to have products assessed through the new Dual Evaluation and Certification Program receiving both the ICC—ES Mark for code compliance and the UL Mark for safety.

The Dual Evaluation and Certification Program with ICC—ES and UL launched in December 2009 to help building manufacturers show compliance with both standards and codes, through one point of contact. USG’s Fortacrete® Structural Panels were tested and certified to UL safety standards and evaluated to meet ICC—ES acceptance criteria.

In addition to the Dual Evaluation and Certification Program for the building products industry, ICC—ES and UL also established a Dual PMG Listing Program to verify that plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas products comply with applicable codes and standards.
