UL, formerly called Underwriters Labs, soon expects to certify wearables for safety and security, including user privacy.
Founded in 1894 and more commonly known for certifying appliances for electrical safety, UL is developing draft requirements for security and privacy for data associated with Internet of Things devices, including wearables. A pilot program is underway, and UL plans to launch the program early in 2016, UL told Computerworld.
UL first announced its interest in wearable compliance services in January.
