DNV GL’s centre of excellence for smart energy and cyber security testing expertise has achieved UKAS accreditation and CESG recognition. After several months of intense assessment, the newly-opened Technical Assurance Laboratory (DTAL) based in Peterborough has been accredited and recognised to offer Common Criteria and Commercial Product Assurance testing.
Common Criteria (CC) is an international standard that allows products to be evaluated and tested against a range of internationally agreed Protection Profiles. This enables manufacturers to achieve the necessary certifications to sell their products in valuable markets, such as the US Federal Government market, as it demonstrates that their products have been independently tested and assured, providing increased confidence in the vital security performance of those products.
