ANSI/TIA-942 covers the telecommunications infrastructure and all other aspects of a mission-critical data center, such as the site location, architectural and physical structure of the building, electrical and mechanical infrastructure, fire safety and physical security.
The TIA-942 certification scheme establishes Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) deemed competent to verify data center conformity with the standard.
Within the TIA-942 certification scheme, CABs will be accredited through the independent evaluation of an organization against recognized standards to ensure their impartiality, competence, and consistency. The accreditation process established for this scheme relies on a uniform approach accepted and implemented around the world to determine the competence of an audit organization.
