DHS Trusted Tester Program (TT)

The Department of Homeland Security Office of Accessible Systems & Technology (OAST) is committed to the development of the common testing approach for accessibility compliance and conformity, named Trusted Tester (TT).  TT provides a code-inspection based test approach for determining software and website conformance to the Section 508 standards.

Benefits of Trusted Tester

  • Promotes a common understanding of the 508 standards.
  • Unifies the test process.
  • Unifies the set of test tools.
  • Unifies test results reporting.
  • Test results can be shared for common applications (i.e. Shared Services, COTS, etc.)
  • Supports IT governance by integrating Section 508 into the development and acquisition lifecycle.
  • Promotes the successful adoption of the changes required to integrate the TTP within an agency.
  • Improves ability for developers to reproduce test results which expedites remediation of nonconformance.
