Subject: Core Trust Seal v ISO 16363

Dr. Stall,

I discovered the Enabling FAIR Data Project website through a reference in the NSF Dear Colleague Letter 19-069.<https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2019/nsf19069/nsf19069.jsp?WT.mc_id=USNSF_25&WT.mc_ev=click#ftn4> I was particularly struck by the mention of CoreTrustSeal and ISO 16363 certifications on the Resources<http://www.copdess.org/enabling-fair-data-project/enabling-fair-data-faqs/#2_Data_Deposition_and_Sharing> page of the website. The page does not make it clear that there is a substantial difference in the rigor/extent of the two certification processes.

Core Trust Seal:
Consists of 16 high-level requirements
Involves self-assessment and peer review
Is a one-time assessment

ISO 16363 Certification:
Consists of over 100 metrics
Metrics are designed to assess compliance with ISO 14721
Involves a third party audit by ISO-accredited auditors
Uses ISO auditing standards - ISO 16919 and ISO/IEC 17021
Involves ongoing audits

It is also worth noting that the Working Group that developed and maintains ISO 14721:2012, A Reference Model for an Open Archival Information System (OAIS), ISO 16363:2012, Audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories, and ISO 16919:2014, Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of candidate trustworthy digital repositories, does so under the auspices of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS). The CCSDS membership includes most of the national and international space agencies around the world.

I would think that an explanation of the substantial differences in the two certification processes would be useful for the readers of the Enabling FAIR Data Project website.

In the interests of full disclosure, I am a member of the Working Group that produced and maintains the ISO standards.
