DHS S&T announces new accreditation organizations to join compliance assessment program to test emergency response communications equipment

from IAEM

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) recently announced that the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation, ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board, and International Accreditation New Zealand joined the Directorate's laboratory accreditation efforts. These three accreditation organizations will participate in S&T's Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP) that tests emergency response communications equipment to verify required standards are met. To date, accreditation of P25 CAP laboratories had been conducted solely by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The three organizations joining these efforts will be helping to sustain the program and enhance overall interoperability for the first responder community. DHS and NIST will continue to work with partner accreditation organizations to develop program guideline documents, furthering the P25 CAP mission of sustainability.
