Yes, you may always coordinate a certification application on behalf of a customer, as long as your company is an ANT+ Adopter. There are few different cases:
• Case 1: Your customer hired your company to develop the product and they own the design. In this case, your customer is considered the “Product Owner” -- the product will be listed in your customer’s name, and fees are charged based on your customer’s membership level.
To apply on their behalf, list your company as the “applicant” on the application form, and your customer as the “product owner”. You determine who is invoiced in the Billing section of the form.
• Case 2: Your company owns the design and this customer is one of many that will brand and sell the design. Your company may sell the product as a “certified ANT+ design” by following the process below:
1. Your company certifies the design under your company name. Fees will be charged based on your membership level. Once certified, the design will be listed in your name on the B2B Guide. This is great exposure to prospective customers for your design
2. Any customers that purchase this product and rebrand as their own can then apply for a ‘Type 2’ certification (previously certified product with cosmetic changes only), for rights to claim ANT+ interoperability, use the ANT+ logo and word mark on their branded product and collateral, and have the product listed in their name on the consumer product directory. Fees will be charged based on their membership level.
