How To Certify A Device
To certify a device, your company must follow this six-step process:
- Become a UPnP Forum Implementer Member. Membership requires execution of the Implementer Membership Addendum and payment of US$5000 annual membership dues.
- Access the certification test tool via the Members Only area.
- Run the test tool at your own facility or at a 3rd party test house.
Submit the test logs, along with Web-based device registration form, to the Test Reviewer.
Note: Your company must submit a device registration form for each device. Visit the Members Only area for additional information.
Once you have submitted the test logs and device registration forms, the Test Reviewer reviews the test logs and contacts you with testing results.
Note: The review may require up to five (5) working days; however, two working days is our goal.
If the device passes, your company receives a certificate of conformity for that particular device. The certificate authorizes your company to use the certification mark on the certified device and in associated marketing material, according to the Implementer Membership Addendum and the Logo Usage Guidelines document and FAQ, which are accessible via the Members Only area).
If the device fails, your company is notified of the failure and reason, no certificate is issued, and your company may not market the device as UPnP-certified. Your company is welcome to alter the device and retest.
