Certification Process - How to Get Certified

Included below is an overview summary of the steps involved in the certification process. The complete process is described in the OCF Certification Procedure Requirements document.

  1. The applicant must be an OCF member (gold level or higher) and have signed the Certification Mark License Agreement.
  2. The applicant will fill out information about the platform via the Create OCF Product link on the OCMS.
  3. After reviewing the information generated by the applicant’s responses, an OCF Certification Expert (OCE) will determine the readiness of the platform to be tested. If required, the OCE may request additional information.
  4. The OCE will test the platform according to the test plan generated by the applicant’s registration on the OCMS.
  5. Following testing, the OCMS will notify the applicant of a pass or fail and the CB and OCF Administration will register the product and create a Certificate of Conformity.
  6. The applicant may use the OCF Certification Mark in accordance with the terms of the Certification Mark License Agreement and OCF Certification Mark Usage Guidelines.
