Radar/Lidar Testing

Conforming Products List (CPL)

The IACP publishes a CPL for radar and lidar speed-measuring equipment. The device models that appear on the CPL have been tested and found to be in compliance with IACP's minimum performance specifications that were in effect when the device model was first placed on the CPL. IACP recommends that law enforcement agencies use the CPL as one of its criteria when purchasing radar and lidar speed-measuring equipment.

Speed Measuring Devices Minimum Performance Specifications

The Across-The-Road Radar, Down-The-Road Radar, and Lidar minimum performance specifications are maintained by the IACP but published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The minimum performance specifications are intended to help ensure that speed-measuring devices are both accurate and reliable when properly operated and maintained.

Testing

As part of the Radar and Lidar testing program, the IACP maintains two testing laboratories to provided law enforcement agencies and manufacturer’s who are interested in having their devices undergo testing.

Manufacturer’s and law enforcement agencies interested in submitting their device(s) for testing should contact Sarah Horn, program manager, at horn@theiacp.org or at 703-836-6767, ext. 215.

Manufacturer’s and law enforcement agencies will need to fill out a testing request form in order for their devices to get tested. Download the form by clicking here.
