Certification of Scrutineering Software 15/05/2012

Software

A requirement for all scrutineering software products used in WDSF sanctioned competitions to be certified by WDSF goes into effect from January 2013.

Over the past several months, a task force  has compiled a catalogue of requirements that a software product must meet in order to obtain an official certification.

An agile process for testing and verifying a software's compliance with the WDSF defined requirements is in place.

The WDSF Technical Commission/Sports Department issues the "Proof of Certification" to the developers and vendors of scrutineering software subject to the requirements and the process outlined under the links below.
