The CSP‑L and SMAERS components are certified independently. In the process, an evaluator (a company accredited by the BSI) checks the components’ compliance with the protection profiles. The evaluation report is then forwarded to the BSI for review. With positive completion, the components each receive a certificate. Finally, the components in the compound (= technical safety system) are tested by the TR test. If the TSS is implemented correctly and according to the applicable requirements, it gets certified. There are strong synergies with the TR test in the evaluation of the SMAERS component, i.e., the TR test can only be completed positively if the SMAERS component has also been evaluated positively. Therefore, after receiving the SMAERS certificate, one can expect the final TSS certification in a timely manner. The BSI issues the certification, which must be renewed every five years.
