EOSC Compliance Assessment Toolkit

Q2 2025
  • Implementation challenges
    • Persistent Identifiers
  • Problem addressed

    There is currently no unambiguous way to assess the compliance of Persistent Identifier (PID) schemes in use. In order for EOSC to implement a consistent PID Policy, it needs to have an assessment tool in place to assess and verify compliance. This will be provided by the Compliance Assessment Toolkit (CAT).

    Who can use the result

    Repository (PID) managers and PID service providers looking to evaluate the compliance of their own services, or to query existing assessments for other services in the PID ecosystem. End users of persistent identifiers are supported with assessments of the actors in the ecosystem. Guidance and best practices, linked to compliance criteria, assists all actors with improvements to the use and provision of services.
