Obtaining a Global Certification Forum (GCF) certificate

If you are a manufacturer of RCS v1.2.2/HotFix-devices or clients, you will be granted a joyn™ license based on your GCF certification, assuming the certificate has been obtained after November 1st 2013 and it includes mandatory tests for RCS certification.

In most cases, it’s sufficient to provide a copy of the adequate GCF certificate to GSMA in order to be granted a joyn™ license, however

  • if you have not previously accredited an RCS client/device
    OR
  • if the client/device has undergone major update of Operating System (being defined as change of name or 1st digit in version number of the OS) since accreditation

you will also need to provide:

Please note that these traces and the UX matrix are for the GSMA’s information only and no further action will be needed for you to obtain the license.

Contact GCF if you need more information or support for the Certification process.
