Working closely with the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), Kyrio is an authorized test lab (ATL) to help the foundation achieve its mission of ensuring secure interoperability for the next 25 billion devices for the Internet of Things (IoT).
OCF Certified means that the device has passed a series of tests that demonstrate interoperability across connected devices according to the OCF’s specifications. In addition, an OCF Certified device demonstrates a successful cross-device, cross-technology framework for secure device discovery and connectivity.

Choosing Kyrio as Your ATL

To submit a device to Kyrio for OCF compliance testing, complete the following steps:
- Become an OCF member and pay the applicable annual membership fee, and sign the OCF Certification Mark and Licensing Agreement.
- Applicant vendor submits the following information to the OCF Certification Body:
- Device and contact information
- Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS)
- Select Kyrio as preferred OCF ATL
- Upon approval of above information by OCF, the applicant vendor sends their candidate OCF device to Kyrio by following these steps:
- Upon arrival of the device to our facility, Kyrio executes the tests according to the OCF test plan and provides test logs to the OCF Certification Body.
- If the device passes, the vendor receives a certificate of conformity from the OCF Certification Body, which authorizes the vendor to use the certification mark on the certified device and in associated marketing material, according to the OCF Logo Usage Guidelines.
- If the device fails, then the OCF 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 OCF certified. In this case, Kyrio will work closely with the vendor to resolve issues and retest the device for certification.
