Who we are

Brightsight is the largest independent security evaluation lab in the world, with three labs worldwide: in the Netherlands (HQ), Spain and China. A fourth lab will open in France in early 2021.

What we do

Brightsight has over 35 years of experience in evaluating IT products in different industries. We evaluate these products against requirements set by governmental and private schemes. Brightsight has been a Common Criteria and EMVCo hardware lab since 2002. We are uniquely positioned with our accreditations by multiple governmental Common Criteria schemes: CSA (Singapore), TSE (Turkey), NSCIB (the Netherlands), CCN (Spain) and SERTIT (Norway). Our quality management system is ISO 17025 certified. 


The schemes use our evaluation reports to issue product certificates stating that evaluated products comply with their requirements. A product certificate gives you access to the market you would like to serve with your product. 


Brightsight has excellent relationships with all the schemes, resulting in a short evaluation and certification timeline to get your product to market in time. With our extensive list of accreditations, we can help you get multiple certifications with minimal additional costs.
