MAC Certification Update
Manifest Analysis Certification (MAC/MACGold/MACBatch) Cycle I interim certification will be granted to all products currently being tested for a period of 30 days after the implementation date (through June 13). All Certification of product under MAC Cycle E, MACGold Cycle D, and MACBatch Cycle H will expire on May 14. It is important to note that MAC/MACGold/MACBatch Certification does not now, nor has it ever, guaranteed acceptance. It is still incumbent on the software developers to make all necessary changes for the May 14th implementation date and distribute the products to their customers.
Any product that is 'in-house' by the May 14th implementation date and was previously certified during MAC Cycle E, MACGold Cycle D or MACBatch Cycle H, will be granted a 30-day interim certification which will be renewable in 30-day increments. Those products will appear on the Certified Products Listing (CPL) with the interim expiration date.
Products that are 'new' to the MAC Certification procedures or that were not previously approved during the last MAC cycle will not be provided an interim certification and must complete all required testing prior to being published on the CPL as MAC-certified.
If you have questions please call 800-331-5746 and ask for the MAC Certification group.
