Description

This is a call for participation in the MIG temporary sub-group on Validation and conformity testing.

As INSPIRE is coming into a practical implementation phase member states, national contact points, dataset and service providers as well as software implementers express a great need for conformance validation tools regarding INSPIRE metadata, service and data regulations. This has been recognised in the proposed task MIWP-5: Validation and conformity testing (#2127) in the INSPIRE maintenance and implementation work programme.

In the intial workshop on MIWP-5, it was decided to set up a sub-group and develop a work plan for the work on MIWP-5, which has subsequently be confirmed by the MIG-T.

The main objective of the sub-group is the development of a commonly agreed European validator for INSPIRE metadata, network services and data sets. The validation and conformity testing will be based mainly on the technical solutions proposed in the TGs. The sub-group shall be organised according to the following three main tasks:

  1. Policies and procedures
  2. Software development
  3. Test development

Background and a detailed description of the scope, tasks and deliverables is available in the attached Terms of reference and draft work plan.
