In December 2020, CentERdata applied for the CoreTrustSeal certification for the LISS Data Archive.
CoreTrustSeal offers a core level certification based on the World Data System (WDS) of the International Science Council and the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) catalogue and procedures. This universal catalogue of requirements reflects the core characteristics of trustworthy data repositories (https://www.coretrustseal.org/about/). CoreTrustSeal Data Repository certification replaces the DSA certification, which was earlier obtained for the LISS Data Archive.
