Chet - OASIS: recommendation #2: OASIS needs to act as the checkpoint, to ensure that the proposals have the resources and maturity to be successful. Once a project is approved, OASIS will provide reliable back-end resources (Web-based forum, certification calendar, database of test artifacts for each self-certifying TC) and assistance in managing these resources and supervising their access. OASIS staff should also expect to occasionally assist in the testing logistics, especially if some run-time test resources (e.g. a conformance service) are hosted by OASIS. If the demand for certification significantly increases over time for a particular standard due to broad adoption by the market, then outsourcing to a 3rd party certification organization should be considered. Such an organization would then be accredited by OASIS, and would function with oversight from the TC.

One option that TCs may wish to consider is working with a 3rd party certification organization, especially if their industry is supporting such an effort. (See the LegalXML ECF / IJIS Springboard case study in Section 8.) Such an organization could be accredited by OASIS, and function with oversight from the TC.

(See the LegalXML ECF / IJIS Springboard case study in Section 8.) Such an organization could be accredited by OASIS, and function with oversight from the TC. An option like this could address funding and expertise constraints that might otherwise prevent a self-certification effort from succeeding.
Chet - OASIS: Any objections to declaring this the approved copy and sending it to Laurent? None heard.
Chet - OASIS: Draft approved.
