Device Testing

The BTL Working Group has developed a testing package which contains a set of testing procedures that can be acquired and used by manufacturers to pre-test their products for BACnet® compliance before they send their products to the BTL for official testing. This package may be obtained from the BTL by the manufacturer when it officially applies for testing.


The BTL uses this test package to verify compliance. The test package contains all of the tests and requirements that are currently being tested at the labs. The package is applied to the device via the checklist which is completed by the manufacturer and indicates the device's capabilities, and therefore specifies which tests should be run on the device. In addition to the testing package, the BTL may also use equipment and tools developed by other organizations during the testing process. Some of the tools used are listed in the Pre-Testing Tools section.


If you have any questions the BTL can be reached via email at
