Certification Testing Overview

The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute offers three classes of certification:

1. Devices

2. Stacks

3. Systems

Certification gaurentees interoperability of ISA100 Wireless products. 

Only products that cary the ISA100 Wireless Compliant logo have acheived certification.

The institute also conducts annual interoperability testing to ensure devices, stacks, and systems perform as expected and to validate WCI certification tests provide necessary and sufficient coverage.

Certification Benefits

Certification ensures interoperability between devices, stacks, and systems from any supplier and provides confidence to end users that any product with the ISA100 Compliant logo will work in their systems. 

The ISA100 Wireless Compliant logo is an important product differentiator for suppliers’ products and systems.


Products passing the ISA100 Compliant conformance testing are listed on the ISA100 Wireless Registered Products page of this website. 

WCI will issue notices to members and a formal press release to the general public if approved by the supplier.

ISA100 Standards Continuous Improvement

The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute maintains a liaison with the ISA100 Standards Committee to communicate feedback from suppliers implementing the standard in their wireless products and end users deploying ISA100 Wireless products at their operational sites.


The ISA100 Wireless Compliance handles all testing.  Device, stack, and system submittals and results are kept confidential, protecting manufacturers' intellectual property and marketplace strategies.
