Validity of Prior Non-Core Hardware Environmental and EMC Testing

The EAC concludes that to insure voting systems subject to certification are tested in the most thorough manner possible, the integrity of the program requires that prior testing is only presumed valid when conducted by a third party laboratory while under the direction of an EAC accredited VSTL. In order, however, to allow voting systems currently in the testing process to move forward during this critical time, the EAC will allow the use of non-core environmental and EMC testing undertaken and completed within one year prior to the implementation of our program (January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2006) under the following conditions:- . VSTL’s must submit all such non-core environmental and EMC testing to the EAC for review- the VSTL or its designated sub contractor laboratory shall re-run the electrostatic disruption test - The results of this ESD test shall be submitted to the EAC for review and approval prior to the EAC accepting any prior environmental or EMC testing.
