EAC's Quality Monitoring Program is designed to ensure that voting systems certified by EAC are the same systems sold by manufacturers. The quality monitoring process is a mandatory part of the program and includes elements such as fielded voting system review, anomaly reporting, and manufacturing site visits. For more information see Chapter 8 of the Voting System Testing and Certification Program Manual

System Advisory Notices

System Advisory Notices are an important part of the Quality Monitoring Program. EAC issues advisories to inform jurisdictions and members of the public of an existing anomaly or issue with an EAC-certified system. The advisory notice describes the nature of the issue identified, the root cause of the issue if known, and the current status of a solution to the issue. EAC will follow up with additional advisory notices regarding unresolved issues as more information is gathered and the problem is resolved.  

These notices support EAC's quality monitoring program requirement related to identifying and reporting anomalies of fielded EAC systems.

See below for specific System Advisory Notices.
