How it Works
To ensure its integrity, GCF Certification encompasses four distinct processes:
Qualification of manufacturers to demonstrate they have the skills, working practices and resources to participate in the certification scheme.
Definition & validation of certification criteria for new features and requirements.
Assessment of each new mobile device to demonstrate that all relevant certification criteria have been met. Certification criteria include conformance tests, interoperability tests and field trials.
In the Declaration process, GCF Operator Members are advised that a mobile device has successfully met all relevant certification criteria.
