‘India Demands Safety Standards’ is a multi-pronged initiative that showcases the importance of safety standards across various verticals. Behind the campaign are Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a global safety science organization, and CNN-News18, a leading English news channel in India.
The campaign aims to raise consumer awareness on the advantages of using safety-compliant products, devices and technologies – vis-à-vis non-certified alternatives across varied categories, such as consumer products, electronic devices, chemicals, medical devices and infrastructure.
