nestor Seal for Trustworthy Digital Archives

The extended self-assessment process for digital archives developed and offered by nestor on the basis of the DIN 31644 standard “Criteria for trustworthy digital archives” offers digital archives a harmonised and practical method of checking whether they are trustworthy. If the reviewed assessment yields a positive result they are entitled to publicise this by using the nestor Seal for Trustworthy Digital Archives. A fee of 500 € applies. Further information is available in the Explanatory Notes on the nestor Seal below.

While the nestor seal can be obtained as a standalone solution, it also fits into the European Framework for Audit and Certification. On top of the Basic Certification provided by the Data Seal of Approval, the nestor seal grants an Extended Certification.

If you are interested in this certification please contact us: nestorsiegel@langzeitarchivierung.de
