Airport Lighting Equipment Certification Program (ALECP)

The ALECP allows FAA-approved third party certifiers to evaluate and certify airport lighting equipment and license suppliers to mark products that meet FAA specifications. Suppliers are not required to participate in this program. However, to qualify for Federal grant assistance, airport sponsors must purchase equipment certified under the ALECP.
