Test system validation and pre-adoption test system recognition are two distinct and unrelated processes.
Test System Validation concerns Bluetooth® test systems that have met the requirements of the Test System Activation Process and are named within the approved Test Case Reference List (TCRL), as is required for their use by Bluetooth SIG members in qualification. Validated test systems are listed in the table below.
Pre-Adoption Test System Recognition concerns only the test systems of manufacturers who are marketing systems that support Bluetooth functionality that has not yet been adopted for qualification. Test system manufacturers may apply for recognition by completing the pre-adoption test system process and application. Access to the Pre-Adoption Test System Recognition program is restricted to Associate and Promoter membership levels. Recognized pre-adoption test systems are listed on the Pre-Adoption Test System Recognition page.
