This sub-project addresses action MIWP-5 (Validation and conformity testing) of the Maintenance and Implementation Work Programme:

As INSPIRE is coming into a practical implementation phase there is a great need of tools for validation (metadata, service and data). There is a validation service (Webservice) available at the EU-portal and some countries have also developed tools for validation of metadata and services, for instance in the Netherlands and Germany. These validators might include slightly different interpretations of standards. To ensure that result from a tests of conformity are identical, a common, officially approved, validator should be accessible from INSPIRE web.

Software vendors claim that their products are INSPIRE-compliant without having undergone a certification process.

The abstract test suites in Inspire data specifications define the set of tests to be applied but there is no reference implementation of those abstract test suites.
