    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    Convened in 2014, this RDA Interest Group aims to deliver a comprehensive and inclusive overview, as well as the necessary recommendations and requirements that enables the effective implementation of certification of digital repositories on national, European, and global levels. It continues to provide a forum for discussion of repository certification principles and, partially through creation of Working Groups, to facilitate the development of principles and practices in the area of repository certification.
