Qualifying FAIR

The GO FAIR Foundation has been asked by numerous sectors to provide qualification criteria for FAIR-related resources which may eventually lead to certification. This request has come from a broad range of stakeholders and concerns the widely perceived need for independent third-party criteria and validation of resources with respect to the FAIR Principles, for technical components, domain-relevant standards, FAIR-related training, for FAIR implementation events, for people and organizations that aspire to FAIR practices. It is believed that FAIR qualification, when appropriately applied, can be a powerful accelerator of convergence onto wide-spread FAIR implementations.
