Training Course – ISO 16363 – Digital Repository Auditing

Date: 29th September 2014

Location: London

High Level Residential Training Course on ISO 16363 for Auditors and Managers of Digital Repositories

London 29 Sept – 3 Oct 2014

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 (OAIS – a reference model for what is required for an archive to provide long-term preservation of digital information)
  • ISO 16363 (Audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories – sets out comprehensive metrics for what an archive must do, based on OAIS)
  • ISO 16919 (soon to be published – 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 set of trustworthy digital repositories.

The authors of these standards will be running a 5-day residential training course in London from 29 September – 3 October 2014.   
Places for this course are limited so please register your interest on the PTAB web site and we will forward details of the training schedule and logistics by return, including registration and payment details – see
