RAPAT (Rapid Acceptance of Products & Technologies) is a free, easy-to-use tool, created to help technology developers meet the urgent need for emergency product acceptance. Excel-based, our tool is applicable across a range of technologies and leads the developer through a series of questions and worksheets to help define technology and user requirements and understand the associated risks and to support you in demonstrating evidence of fulfilling the requirements and managing the risks so the technology can be verified/approved for use by end-user. As a generic tool, it is also applicable for non-emergency applications and provides a structured approach based on industry best practice to support product acceptance and certification.
