Certification Transfer Program (CTP)
Become a part of The Alliance ecosystem of Certified Products.
An Alternate Path to Certification
The Alliance Certification Transfer Program (CTP) offers companies one more path to joining the Alliance ecosystem of Certified Products. The program enables Alliance Participant and Promoter members to offer their Certified Products to customers for re-branding/white labeling while maintaining the Certified status of those products.
Participants and Promoters can now offer a Certified product to a customer and allow the customer to re-certify the product under its company name. Products that have been certified via full testing and via Certification by Similarity are eligible for the program. They are also eligible to receive a Certification Transfer.
Adopters are eligible to receive a Certification Transfer based on a product from a Participant or Promoter company and to re-certify the product under their own company name. Approved products may then carry the Connectivity Standards Alliance’s Certified logo for that standard under the Adopter’s company name.
Associates are eligible to receive a Certification Transfer based on a product from a Participant or Promoter company and to re-certify the product under their own company name. Approved products may then carry the Connectivity Standards Alliance’s Certified logo for that standard under the Associate’s company name.
New member companies can easily and affordably re-brand Certified Products from Alliance Participant and Promoter member companies, and re-certify these products under their company name. Approved products may carry the Zigbee Certified logo under the new company name. Leveraging existing Certified Products enables easier entry to the IoT marketplace, increasing distribution and sales channels.

How CTP Works
Participant and Promoter companies can offer products for Certification Transfer. Products for Certification Transfer must:
- Be an End Product
- Be previously certified by the Alliance (Zigbee 3.0, Zigbee Smart Energy, and Green Power devices only)
- Belong to a Participant or Promoter member company
- Be enrolled in the program by a Participant or Promoter Company for Certification Transfer in the member Certification Tool
Eligible companies apply to re-certify products under their own company name, as long as the product:
- Has not undergone any functional changes* from the originally-certified product; and
- Seeks certification under the same program, device type, and device capabilities as the originally certified product
*Only branding or appearance changes to the product packaging, enclosure, and/or user interface are permitted (e.g., acceptable changes include: enclosure color, brand markings, and UI splash screen).
