Standards Technical Panels (STPs) are an important part of the process by which UL develops and maintains its Standards for Safety. An STP is a group of individuals, representing a variety of interests, formed to review proposals related to UL Standards for Safety. When an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/UL Standard for Safety is involved, an STP serves as the consensus body to review and vote on proposals prior to publication.
The development of ANSI/UL Standards for Safety greatly benefits from the expertise of individuals interested in the products affected by ANSI/UL Standards.
UL Standards are recognized nationally and internationally as the benchmarks for product safety. The Standards Technical Panels (STPs) provide UL with the means to receive early input from those who are interested in the standards development process.
To apply for membership on a Standards Technical Panel (STP), view the STP information on STP Charts, complete the STP Application, and submit the completed STP Application to the Project Manager identified on the STP Chart page.
