The test, to be held from March 17 through April 2, is designed to validate new or revised criteria, test steps, and testing tools against real products and to solicit vendor comment to fine tune the inspection process.

Pilot Test participants will have an opportunity to test new product readiness against the proposed 2008 test scripts without a fee. Applications are due by Feb. 22 and selection will be finalized by Feb. 29.

Interested vendors can find more information and apply online.
