Canadian CC Scheme


Each participating country in the Common Criteria (CC) operates a certification body (CB), managed by a government agency. The CB oversees evaluations conducted by accredited commercial evaluation facilities.

CSE is responsible for managing the Canadian Common Criteria Program (CCCP) and acts as the certification body. As the certification body, CSE provides technical oversight for the evaluations.

Evaluation services are conducted by commercial facilities. To have a product evaluated, vendors contact an accredited commercial evaluation facility. The accredited commercial evaluation facility will evaluate the product against an applicable Protection Profile.
