Vendors may wish to make amendments/enhancements to their WITS certified products post certification. It is recognised that we need to provide a method for vendors to update their certification details and these changes need to be noted in the Device Catalogue without necessarily going through a full re-certification.
We already state in the Device catalogue: “Note that this Device Profile shows the device’s functionality at the time it was listed as a Self Certified/Verified device. The vendor may have changed the device’s functionality since that time and they may have later versions of the Device Profile.”
The Committee has decided that a vendor can list an updated Device Profile but this updated product will not initially be certified. The PSAC can review the change and decide whether the change requires re-certification. If the change does not require re-certification the new Device Profile will replace the profile currently shown in the catalogue. If the change does require re-certification it is the responsibility of the vendor to decide whether or not an updated product will be re-certified – NOT the PSAC.
The Device Catalogue layout will be changed so that it indicates for a Self Certified or Verified product that there is a more recent version of the product available as indicated by the new Device Profile.
All vendors will be informed that they can now publish updated profiles on the website – send requests to the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
