INSPIRE Reference Validator - About

Test your INSPIRE data, services and metadata

The purpose of the INSPIRE Reference Validator is to help data providers, solution providers and national coordinators to check whether data sets, network services and metadata meet the requirements defined in the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines. The validator provides detailed test reports to help implementers understand how well their data, services, metadata or software solutions are doing (or where improvements may be needed).

The Validator is based on the Abstract and Executable Test Suites agreed between Member States and the Commission in the INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Group. See the Roadmap for the test suites that are currently supported and our future planning.

The Validator has been developed under ARE3NA and ELISE Actions of the ISA/ISA2 Programmes.
