IEEE Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP)

Membership Information and Agreement


In an evolving industry, specifications and requirements for the promotion of safe and efficient DC quick charging and bi-directional charging applications are crucial to the further deployment and development of the electric vehicle community. The IEEE 2030.1.1 standard published in 2015 specifies the design interface of electric vehicles and direct current (dc) quick chargers that promote interoperability and rapid charging of electric vehicles. Future iterations of the standard will include additional design requirements to cover the latest technological advancements in the field of bi-directional charging (V2X), ultra-rapid charging up to 400 kW and Smart (dynamic control) charging. The purpose of the program is to formalize the testing and certification process for a charger manufacturer to demonstrate conformance with the published IEEE 2030.1.1™ standard.

Join the IEEE Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Conformity Assessment Steering Committee (CASC)
The IEEE Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Conformity Assessment Steering Committee (CASC) has been formed to support the development of a conformity assessment program around IEEE 2030.1.1™, Standard for Technical Specifications of a DC Quick Charger for Use with Electric Vehicles

EV Charging CASC will establish guidance and protocols that help ensure:

  •  EV Chargers used by end-users (consumers) conform with the current IEEE 2030.1.1TM standard as well as future revisions of the standard
  •  EV Charger conformity is certified
  • Adherence to the certification scheme developed by the CASC
  •  Testing is performed by accredited parties
  • Certified EV Chargers receive the “IEEE Certified” Logo

Why you should join:
As a member of the EV Charging CASC, you'll be joining an outstanding constituency of members in the domain of power and energy who share a common vision to accelerate IEEE standards adoption through conformity assessment and certification programs.

Who should participate:

  • Automobile, charger and connector manufacturers
  • Test laboratories
  • End-User community (utilities, cities, municipalities and EV charging asset owners)
  • Regulators

Benefits for Participants:

  • Networking opportunities with major stakeholders
  • Voting rights on test plans and conformity assessment process
  • Access to all test plans, standards and certification policies
