CTIA

CTIA recognizes A2LA as an option for providing accreditation services to verify conformance of wireless products to industry standards.

The CTIA Wireless Association manages a program to certify LTE/CDMA devices for compliance to industry standards for the North American market. The program utilizes the Global Certification Forum ™ Certification Criteria. 

Devices must pass a rigorous evaluation process, with testing conducted by CTIA Authorized Testing Laboratories (CATL). To meet the requirements of a CATL, laboratories must be accredited by A2LA or another ILAC MRA Accreditation Body.

This specialty program is covered under the A2LA electrical field of testing.

  • LTE/CDMA certification program requirements found at CTIA. 
  • Optional Requirements for the Accreditation of Field Work 
    • A2LA also offers additional requirements for laboratories performing tests in the field (i.e., at other than a permanent laboratory site).
