Become an ITSO Licensed Operator

Only ITSO members can become Licensed Operators and be granted an operating licence. The terms of the licence aim to maintain the integrity of the ITSO operating environment for all users.

Licensed Operators can issue ITSO-compliant cards; issue, sell or accept ITSO products (tickets); and collect and forward data.

They benefit from the use of the ITSO Security Management Service and ITSO trademarks and are required to use only ITSO-compliant hardware and software within their ITSO operations.

Licensed Operators are eligible to join OAG (Operational Advisory Group). This is a user group which aims to promote better understanding between Licensed Operators and ITSO by agreeing Codes of Practice and Guides to complement formal ITSO documentation, whilst encouraging the sharing of experiences concerning implementation and product interoperability.

Become an ITSO Registered Supplier

Before any equipment or software can be used within the ITSO environment, it has to be certified by ITSO.

If your company wishes to certify equipment for use in ITSO environment, you need to become a Registered Supplier.

Becoming a Registered Supplier will give you access to the ITSO Certification & Testing Service and, if the Certification process is completed successfully, entry to the growing market of the ITSO-certified products.

Both ITSO Members and non-members can become Registered Suppliers.
