We would like to remind all members of the Certification Working Group that the following two deliverables are currently under RDA Community Review:
- The Common Requirements that are expected to replace the current certification catalogues of the Data Seal of Approval and the ICSU World Data System.
- A set of Common Procedures outlining the joint certification process that will be set up in the initial stages of the partnership between the two organizations.
Please note that this is the final opportunity to provide comments on these documents before they become RDA Recommendations, and so we would like to encourage you to send any feedback you have to the WG as soon as possible.
The WG's third deliverable of a testbed is currently underway, and a report of its outcomes will also be posted for Community Review in early 2016.
Many thanks for your continued interest in this work.
(On behalf of Lesley Rickards & Mary Vardigan, WG Co-chairs)
