Charter for the Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program   [open pdf - 86KB]

"The Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP) is a voluntary program that allows P25 equipment suppliers to formally demonstrate their products' compliance with a select group of requirements within the suite of P25 standards. The purpose of the program is to provide emergency response agencies with evidence that the communications equipment they are purchasing meet P25 standards for performance, conformance, and interoperability. The program requires test laboratories to demonstrate their competence through a rigorous and objective assessment process. Such a process promotes the user community's confidence in, and acceptance of, test results from recognized laboratories. All equipment suppliers that participate in the P25 CAP must use recognized laboratories to conduct performance, conformance, and interoperability tests on their products. P25 equipment suppliers will release summary test reports from recognized labs along with declarations of compliance. This documentation will serve to increase the public's confidence in the performance, conformance, and interoperability of P25 equipment. [...]. P25 CAP will provide the more than 60,000 emergency response agencies nationwide with a consistent and tractable perspective of P25 product compliance. It will also provide a means of verifying that Federal grant dollars are being invested in standardized solutions and equipment that promotes interoperability. This document serves as the charter for the P25 CAP program. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of the involved parties. This document also includes an overview of the program including what is required of testing laboratories, vendors, and other participants."
