Announcement of release of BETA Test Framework and launch of MoReq2010 testing programme
To coincide with the first day of the DLM Forum's triennial conference the DLM Forum has begun to release the MoReq2010 test framework and kick started the testing programme for compliant solutions.
Following on from the previous announcement in September inviting test centres to seek accreditation and join the MoReq2010 test programme, the DLM Forum is now releasing the test framework that will be used by accredited test centres for testing solutions.
The DLM Forum has had multiple responses to the call for test centres to join the MoReq2010 test programme and expects to announce the first new MoReq2010 accredited test centre at the conference.
The test centre accreditation agreement previously published in draft for consultation has now been finalised and can be found with the other test materials here. (A reminder that any independent organisation that fulfils the qualification requirements can apply for accreditation as a MoReq2010 Test Centre.)
The test framework consists of a number of separate test materials including:
These documents can also be found and downloaded with the other test materials and more test modules will be added shortly.
The MoReq2010 test programme is currently in BETA and will remain so until the test framework has been verified by testing in the field. Verification of the test framework will be done concurrently with the first few solutions to be tested. As some suppliers have already expressed interest in having their solutions tested and certified, the DLM Forum is keen to discuss with them potentially joining the BETA test programme.
All expressions of interest and feedback should be sent to the DLM Forum secretariat, where it will be passed on to the testing, accreditation and certification panel of the MoReq Governance Board.
Earlier this year the DLM Forum announced the publication of its Modular Requirements for Record Systems (MoReq2010) Specification. The specification is available here.
