      1. Regulatory Compliance Assessment – WERCS



        Kroger utilizes WERCSmart by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) to help manage regulatory compliance requirements. Our suppliers must carefully read Kroger’s WERCs Supplier letter and register affected products at https://www.ulwercsmart.com.

        To avoid an item setup delay, we recommend registering the item with WERCS prior to setting it up with Kroger. Items that require a WERCS assessment will not complete item setup until the WERCS assessment is completed.

        This requirement includes existing products previously sold to Kroger as well as new products. Please contact wercsinfo@kroger.com with any questions.

        Classes of products requiring registration in WERCS include the following. This list is not exhaustive; contact wercsinfo@kroger.com if you are unsure whether your product should be registered.


        Aerosol Item contains compressed gas or propellant
        Battery or Battery-Containing Item is a battery, contains a battery, or has a battery packed with it
