PTCRB AUTHORIZED TEST LABS

The PTCRB certification program utilizes a vetted third-party testing system. There are many fully accredited PTCRB authorized testing laboratories located around the world; and several associate PTCRB authorized testing laboratories to support those fully accredited laboratories.

PTCRB laboratories cooperatively work together within the PVG (PTCRB Validation Group) to validate and manage the test cases that define the certification program.

Qualified labs are required to meet specific requirements, including:
• Demonstration of necessary tools and knowledge to test devices to the PTCRB specified test requirements
• Independence from any direct connection to a manufacturer*
• Demonstration of knowledge of the PTCRB certification requirements and processes
*This is accomplished through ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation
