BACnet rolls out new Certification program

The BACnet Testing Laboratories (BTL) Certification Program was formed by the merger of the BTL Listing and WSPCert Certificate programs. It provides companies with a Certificate of Conformance, a BTL Listing and the right to use the BTL Mark.

BACnet - A Data Communication Protocol for Building Automation and Control Networks was developed under the auspices of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), BACnet is an American national standard, a European standard, a national standard in more than 30 countries, and an ISO global standard. The protocol is supported and maintained by ASHRAE Standing Standard Project Committee 135 whose members have created and provided the content for this Website.

The BTL Mark is a mark of distinction and has come to represent a high level of quality and conformance based on rigorous independent testing. The BTL Certification Program provides suppliers with a way to highlight products that have successfully completed this testing, while it provides users with assurance that these products have been independently tested and have passed industry standard BACnet testing. The tests are designed to validate that the product correctly implements a specified set of BACnet features. The rigorous testing associated with obtaining the right to use the BTL Mark is a powerful methodology for finding and eliminating implementation errors before a product reaches the market.

Combining the current BTL Listing and WSPCert programs makes it easier for suppliers and users since there is now one integrated global process for BACnet Certification and Listing. Suppliers will only have to submit one application and all new products will have a formal certificate. Users and integrators can now look in one place to find information on all tested products. For many this listing will be a primary research tool for BACnet product information.
