Q:What is the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) and mutual recognition?

The CCRA is an international agreement between CC certificate-producing and certificate-consuming nations to recognise CC certifications for Evaluation Assurance Levels (EAL) 1 through 2. Through AISEP, Australia and New Zealand are joint certificate-producing members of the CCRA. Certificate-consuming nations do not administer a CC scheme but recognise CC certificates issued by certificate-producing nations. Participants of the CCRA benefit from shared certification results without the need to duplicate an evaluation. Information about the CCRA may be found on the CC Portal.
