      • Phase II - GSA will open the field to other testing agencies

      • Phase III – GSA will periodically evaluate the performance of licensed testing agencies

    Charter

    The GSA Regulatory Advisory Committee’s purpose is to ensure that all standards adopted by the Association are compliant with known jurisdictional requirements. In addition the committee will provide regulators access to GSA technology education and establish a forum in which regulators, manufacturers, systems providers and operators can collaborate to address industry issues.

    RAC Committee

    • Mechanism for open dialogue between Regulators and GSA

      • Regulators are unwilling to formally participate in GSA due to impartiality concerns

      • Regulators are eager to learn about what GSA is working on and to provide input

      • RAC chair has been positioned as the Regulator’s point of contact within GSA

      • Routine one-on-one calls to each Regulatory body has been effective in identifying their concerns, creating demand for detailed information on BOB, and making headway in having regulators seek the Association’s input.
