Verizon Independent Testing Laboratories NEBS Testing

Certification program (NEBS-TCP)

 

 

Verizon has named the following Independent Testing Laboratories (ITL) under its certification program.  This program helps expedite product-to-market cycles for Verizon's telecommunications equipment vendors and creates more economical compliance testing processes.
Under the Verizon ITL NEBS Testing Certification Program (NEBS-TCP) Verizon will accept NEBS testing reports only from laboratories that have qualified under Verizon's certification standards.  The laboratories that are certified thus far are listed below.  Verizon will no longer accept results from other testing laboratories when such tests are performed after January 1, 2003.  Reports for testing performed prior to January 1, 2003, by any laboratory, will continue to be accepted for review.  Verizon selected ITLs based on their interest in participating in the program, their demonstrated competence in performing such testing, their ongoing training programs and their certification in nationally recognized quality programs for laboratories.  Each lab undergoes an initial quality audit and subsequent periodic audits to assure ongoing quality.


This program is open to all qualified Independent Testing Laboratories.  Test laboratories interested in certification under the NEBS-TCP program may contact Todd Talbot- DMTS Verizon NEBS, Fiber & Energy Efficiency (todd.f.talbot@one.verizon.com) for additional information.
