FDT Certifications Break the 3000 Mark
The FDT Group certification office announced that more than 3000 devices are now supported by certified DTMs. The number of companies achieving certification of FDT compliant products has reached a new high of fifty-five. These numbers reflect only certified FDT compliant products as many more non-certified products are available on the market.
“It has been a very busy and exciting year for the certification office,” states Katrien Peeters, manager of the FDT certification office. “More customers are requiring certified DTMs from their suppliers and we clearly see this reflected in our work. The addition of our new independent test center at Lorain County Community College in Ohio, USA, will help companies by providing more options to achieve certification.”
Products wishing to achieve FDT Group certification undergo rigorous testing by independent test labs to ensure compliance with the FDT standard. The FDT Group works closely with the various labs around the world to ensure consistent processes and results. Once a product has received approval from the independent test lab, the FDT Group issues the compliance certificate and posts the product on the FDT Group product directory catalog located at www.fdtgroup.org. The catalog is searchable by manufacturer, device type, and a variety of other options. The web site lists certified Frame applications as well.
