DHS Seeks Public Feedback on New Land Mobile Radio Testing Requirements

The Department of Homeland Security's science and technology directorate has opened a 30-day comment period related to a new set of testing requirements under a program that seeks to ensure interoperability among land mobile radio systems and standardization of LMR components.

DHS S&T will accept public comments on a draft compliance assessment bulletin for the Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program through March 14, the department said Wednesday.

The voluntary program allows communications technology makers to demonstrate their offerings' compliance via tests at authorized laboratories. An agency can buy products approved through P25 CAP with federal grant funds.

The directorate proposed expanding the testing scope to include other equipment types.
