High Level Training Course on ISO 16363 for Managers of Digital Repositories Den Haag, The Netherlands – 18-22 May 2015.
The Primary Trustworthy Digital Repository Authorisation Body (ISO-PTAB) plays a major role in training auditors and repository managers. There are three important ISO standards:
- ISO 14721:2012 (OAIS – a reference model for what is required for an archive to provide long-term preservation of digital information)
- ISO 16363:2013 (Audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories – sets out comprehensive metrics for what an archive must do, based on OAIS)
- ISO 16919:2014 (Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of candidate trustworthy digital repositories – specifies the competencies and requirements on auditing bodies)
These three standards form a closely related family and an understanding of their principles and use will become increasingly important in establishing an internationally recognised and certified set of trustworthy digital repositories.
