PTCRB Certification Process

  1. Begin by setting up an account on the PTCRB website. Then submit a request to access the certification database to certification@ctia.org.
  2. Once CTIA grants access to the database, create a test request on the PTCRB website. As a manufacturer, you will select a primary lab for testing. Information about the device also will be required at this step.
  3. PTCRB will contact the lab to being testing of the device.
  4. When testing is complete, the lab will submit the required documentation to the certification database.
  5. Payment is then made by the manufacturer to the CTIA, the program administrator. Payment estimates can be obtained directly from PTCRB-approved labs.
  6. CTIA will ensure all requirements are met and notify the PTCRB who will then notify the manufacturer.
