Collection of the formal documents relating to the Common Criteria (CC) scheme. Primarily for use by the CLEFs, but may also interest organisations seeking to have their products assessed.

This collection consists of formal documentation for Common Criteria (CC) assessments.

You can also download the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) from the relevant section of the Common Criteria Portal website — www.commoncriteriaportal.org/ccra/. The CCRA is in place to bring about a situation in which IT products and protection profiles which earn a Common Criteria certificate can be procured and used without the need for further evaluation.
