    "there are two answers..
    The CAI ( Confederation of Aerial Services) is a Trade Association for Audio Visual, Aerial and Satellite Professionals, it ensures installers are working within our trade guidelines, it checks installers are trained in all aspects of audiovisual works both professionally and in Health and safety, all members are checked then certified to carry the CAI logo.
    Many products like cables are also certified for use in our industry they will carry the CAI benchmark if they have passed the product tests for use, this will ensure that only the correct products are used in installations.
    kept it simple hope it helps.. more info can be found at; cai.org.uk"

    "CAI Certification Schemes, previously known as Benchmarking Schemes, lay down the minimum standards of product performance based on specified parameters for satisfactory signal reception and network distribution. The testing and certification do not cover the standard of construction and durability."

    "CAI Certification Schemes, previously known as Benchmarking Schemes, lay down the minimum standards of product performance based on specified parameters for satisfactory signal reception and network distribution. The testing and certification do not cover the standard of construction and durability. These factors are left to individual manufacturer warranty descriptions.

    There are two CAI certification schemes - LTE aerials and coaxial cables – and one joint CAI & DTG Scheme - the European IRS Certification Scheme.

    The specifications for all three have been compiled by industry-wide consultation and are monitored and market-tested via both the CAI Technical Committee and the CAI Assessment Executive. Applicants and holders of all CAI product certifications are bound by legal binding contracts that secure adherence to all aspects of the certification. Sample testing of products sold to the trade or in the open market ensures ongoing conformity.

    All three schemes are voluntary for manufacturers wishing to take part, but many tenders and specifications insist that CAI Certified products are used, as do many other bodies including government departments, broadcasters and platform operators. Certified products should always be used in conjunction with the installation practice laid down in CAI's Codes of Practice and the recommendations in DTG R Books.

    Each certified product will display a CAI Certification Scheme logo representing the test standard."
