At the request of members, WTA has launched a certification program for teleports, covering facilities, technical infrastructure and operating procedures. The goal is to create an objective, transparent and internationally accepted method for:
Applying for CertificationThe program will provide four levels of certification, from Tier 4 to Tier 1. Each level will reflect a set of clear and objective standards for facilities, technology and operating procedures. Certification at one of these levels will indicate, at a minimum, that the teleport complies with the standards of that level. More
StandardsThe certification standards were developed by a volunteer committee made up of teleport, satellite and technology executives as well as representatives of end-user customers. We invite you to click on the links below to:

Certification Levels and Cost
WTA charges fees for Provisional and Full Certification as well as reimbursement of auditor travel expenses. Discounted fees are available to operators seeking to certify multiple teleports.
