Dear Colleagues,

After an extensive period of public commentary and after conducting test
certifications, the ICSU World Data System (WDS) and the Data Seal of
Approval (DSA) Board are pleased to announce the availability of the first
version of their universal and unified *Core Trustworthy Data Repository *

The catalogue of requirements was developed through a DSA–WDS partnership
Working Group within the Research Data Alliance (RDA). The group built on
inherent complementarity between the criteria previously established by the
two organizations to harmonize unified and universal requirements
reflecting the core characteristics of trustworthy data repositories.

The DSA Board and the WDS Scientific Committee are working together to
further align their
certification procedures and ensure that the research community will have a
single, clear reference point for seeking Core Trustworthy Data Repository
