The applicant should contract the services of an independent, qualified and unbiased testing organization to develop the test protocol and perform testing. The applicant should work with the test agent to develop the test protocol that will generate data appropriate for the verification.
It is highly recommended that the applicant submit the test protocol to the Canadian ETV Program for review prior to testing.
The independent testing organization should operate and maintain the technology during the test procedure, consistent with the test plan and in accordance with the applicant’s technology Operation & Maintenance documentation.
The test agent should collect samples in accordance with the test protocol. Samples collected during testing should be analyzed by an accredited laboratory.
If necessary, the testing organization can modify and make changes to the existing test plan. However, any changes must be documented.
Upon completion of the test, the testing organization prepares and submits a testing report along with the test data from the accredited laboratory to the owner of the technology (the applicant). For verification requirements, the accredited laboratory used to analyze the samples must be identified and recorded. This includes specifying the accreditation and capabilities of the laboratory analyzing the samples and the provisions in-place for laboratory QA/QC.
