Emergency Response Assessment™ (ERA) for Food Safety and Sanitation

During a crisis, companies must adapt quickly to guideline changes to help keep your employees and customers safe.

UL’s Emergency Response Assessment (ERA) solutions identify areas to improve food safety and sanitation. Plus, our flexible technology allows you the option to receive a virtual audit in the event an in-person visit isn’t possible.

UL Verified Mark for Food Safety Practices Verified

UL’s Marketing Claim Verification is an objective, science-based assessment that confirms the accuracy of marketing claims. Successful verification of a “Food Safety Practices Verified” marketing claim through our Everclean audits result in the issuance of a Verified Mark which you can proudly display at your place of business.

Letting your customers know that your marketing claim is now UL Verified gives you an advantage over competitors with self-declared claims. The UL Verified Mark can be used in promotions, advertising, public relations outreach and social communications to build buzz with current and prospective customers.
