  4. Upon arrival of the device to our facility, Kyrio executes the tests according to the CWSC test plan and provides test logs to the WBA CWSC Certification Body.
  5. If the device passes, the vendor receives a certificate of conformity from the WBA Certification Body, which authorizes the vendor to use the certification mark on the certified device and in associated marketing material, according to the WBA CWSC usage guidelines.
  6. If the device fails, then the WBA CWSC Certification Body notifies the vendor and ATL of the feature and reason. No certificate is issued, and the vendor may not market the device as WBA CWSC certified. In this case, Kyrio will work closely with the vendor to resolve issues and retest the device for certification.
