What is functional compliance certification with the SSCP communication protocol

This is a test program that verifies that a device is SSCP compliant.

SSCP compliant products are displayed in the SSCP compliant products list.
The SSCP functional compliance endorsement can be used in their marketing documents.

The SSCP Functional Compliance Approval instills confidence in integrators, specifiers, practitioners, security managers and IT managers that SSCP compliant products will perform as intended for various access control use cases.


Our verification by a third party testing laboratory ensures that products that have received an SSCP Compliance Approval are compliant with the SSCP standard.

Smart Physical Access Control aims to build and consolidate European supremacy in digital security.

The political, societal and economic stakes demonstrate the importance of having an organization that federates the existing European forces to develop a response to: 

  • the need for Operators of Vital Importance (OIVs), under the terms of the French military programming law (LPM) and European regulations with the European Network and Information Security (NIS) directive defining the OESs (Operators of Essential Services);

  • the GDPR and the French CNIL decree on biometric authentication for physical access control;

  • the implementation of the European CyberAct, and in particular the new certification processes (initially the CC process).


European sovereignty in security has become a priority for the new Commission, and the S.P.A.C.® is showing its commitment to this initiative by creating synergy between European players.

Smart Physical Access Control is a member of the French alliance for digital trust (ACN) and a member of Eurosmart.
