TIA licenses Capitoline as a TIA-942 Certification body

The Telecommunication Industry Association (Arlington, VA) has appointed Capitoline Ltd (London, UK) as a TIA-942 licensed certification body and training provider.

The TIA-942 Certification Program enables data centers to be reviewed and certified for conformity to the requirements of the globally-recognized ANSI/TIA-942 standard, providing greater assurance to customers and stakeholders. The program includes a worldwide listing of TIA-942 certified data centers, TIA-942 certified auditors, consultants and companies providing consulting and auditing services, as well as information and training for companies and individuals interested in becoming a certified auditor or consultant.

Audit and certification by a qualified auditor affiliated with and operating under a licensed Conformity Assessment Body (CAB) is required to validate that the design and build of a data center conforms to the ANSI/TIA-942 standard.

Certification against the TIA-942 standard can be for the design, for the installed facility or ‘TIA942 Ready,’ which may be applicable to products such as prefabricated data centres.

If you would like to get your data centre certified please contact us.


Individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in consulting and auditing data centers to the ANSI/TIA-942 standard can follow a series of TIA-approved training and certification programs such as provided by Capitoline.
