ABSTRACT: Wrist straps are worn by persons who handle or perform maintenance on circuit packs, electronic assemblies, and systems that are
sensitive to Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). Frequent routine testing of wrist straps is required to ensure continued acceptable
performance of the straps to avoid damage from ESD.
GR-1418 provides the Telcordia view of minimum generic requirements for wrist strap testing devices that can quickly provide pass or
fail information to verify the functionality of a wrist strap while it is being worn.
