MirrorLink™ Certification Program
MirrorLink™ Certification is based on MirrorLink™ Specification Conformance, client/server interoperability and a review of a series of administrative requirements. The complete process followed for initial certifications as well as maintaining compliance for already certified products is contained in the CCC's Program Management Document. Members may access the PMD here.
This page describes the major steps for doing initial certification of a new product. Processes for maintaining the certification for an already listed product require contact with the Certification Body.
Certification Program Processes
Certification is granted to a product of a specific manufacturer, product name, model number and revision number. Any change to the identifying markers of a product renders the product not certified. The CCC does, however, permit product variants or re-labelled products to re-use the Certification test results of similar products. The degree to which results may be re-used is determined by the serving Certification Body.
Only the original device manufacturer (ODM) may apply for Certification. If a product is to be relabelled or remarketed for use by another member company, the processes contained in the Program Management Document must be followed.
While only end products are granted CCC Certification it is possible to collect and reuse Certification Test Results for software stacks, modules or other partial implementations. The same overall processes are followed for these partial implementations, but no claims of CCC Certification may be made in these cases. When these partial implementations are used in end products, the party responsible for the end product must clarify with the Certification Body the nature of the integration. The Certification Body will make the final determination on the partial or total reuse of partial implementation test results. The reuse of results will follow the principles of Section 9.13 and 9.14 of the Program Management Document.
