High Level Training Course on ISO 16363 for Managers of Digital Repositories Washington DC – 19-23 October 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.
The aim is that at the end of the course, repository managers should be able to understand what a repository which seeks certification needs to do, what questions they may be asked by auditors and what kinds of evidence may be presented. Auditors should be able to understand what to look for in a repository, what kinds of questions to ask and what issues should be probed.
The course will take place at Courtyard Washington, DC/U.S. Capitol, 1325 2nd Street NE, Washington, DC 20002
