Welcome to the OCA official OCPP 1.6 Certification Program
Every company involved with OCPP 1.6 implementations can now get the official independent OCPP 1.6 Certificate. This will register their product as a certified compliant implementation. The OCPP Certification Program gives companies the opportunity to validate their implementation on conformance with the OCPP 1.6 specification.
What is the OCPP 1.6 Certification program?
The certification program is a joint effort of the Open Charge Alliance and several independent test laboratories around the world to test OCPP 1.6 on conformance to the OCPP specification.
How does it benefit vendors or buyers?
Vendors of compliant systems can now ensure to their clients that the implementation has been validated on conformance to the OCPP specifications by an approved independent test laboratory. Buyers of OCPP 1.6 compliant products can check which products are certified and are successfully tested for conformance to OCPP.
