C3. What is the role of ONC-Authorized Testing Laboratories (ONC-ATLs) in the ONC Health IT Certification Program, and how do organizations apply to become an ONC-ATL?

ONC-ATLs test products against the standards and certification criteria identified by the Secretary. Successfully tested products can be submitted to an ONC-ACB for certification and listing on the CHPL.

NVLAP is responsible for the accreditation of testing laboratories in the ONC Health IT Certification Program. Instructions on how to apply to NVLAP for accreditation are included on the NVLAP website: Instructions for Completing a NVLAP Application.

NVLAP accredited testing laboratories must seek authorization from ONC to test products under the ONC Health IT Certification Program.  Once authorized, they are called ONC-Authorized Testing Laboratories
