The IEEE Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP)

ICAP Conference on Conformity Assessment

You want to design and deliver products that conform to industry standards. Your customers expect it. But do the standards tell you how to go about demonstrating that conformance? Are you interpreting the standard the same way as others in your industry? Do claims of conformance to a standard mean the same thing from one company to the next, and can the customer tell the difference? A meticulously crafted, industry consensus standard can easily lead to a haphazard journey in reaching the desired destination of an industry consensus on conformance to that standard.

The IEEE Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP) provides programs and industry support that help bridge those standards development activities with the conformity assessment activities that accelerate market acceptance and enablement of new products and technologies.

Standards conformance activities relative to IEEE standards take place across nearly all the technology areas covered by the IEEE, but in a wide variety of approaches that may be technology or market dependent. ICAP provides a focal point for conformity issues and related support for IEEE members, as well as for industry groups and individual professionals involved in conformity assessment activities.

The IEEE Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP) is a program of the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO).   The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has invested in the development of ICAP through a Development Agreement with the ISTO in furtherance of its mission to support its standards.  Launched in January 2009, ICAP has the mission to bridge standards development activities with conformity assessment initiatives and to accelerate market acceptance, adoption, and implementation of new products and technologies.
