Version

This page concerns v2.0 of the Specification. Supporting material on v1.0 is SWIM-SERV-027 Service validation

Requirement

Title

Service validation information

Identifier

SWIM-SERV-200

Requirement

A service description shall include or refer to information about the validation that has occurred indicating:

  • whether a validation of the service, including the quality of the service, has been performed; and if so,
  • the method used;
  • the summary of the validation steps performed;
  • the results achieved; and
  • how the service consumer may obtain the validation evidence.

Rationale

This requirement ensures the service description contains sufficient statements on the testing done to enable the consumer to have confidence in the service’s ability to deliver the declared capabilities and in the quality of the service.

Verification

Completeness: Verify that the validation statement is included.

Consistency: If validation has been performed, verify that the statement includes the method and the results of the validation.

Correctness: Not Applicable.

Examples/Notes

Example service validation statement:

  • “The service has not been validated yet”.

It is a best practice to use at least at one of the following methods that are listed in the ICAO Information Service Overview:

  • independent validation;
  • collaborative validation;
  • user validation;
  • self-validation.

Level of Implementation

Mandatory
