Ada Conformity Assessment Authority

Ada Conformity Assessment Authority Home

The Ada Conformity Assessment Authority is responsible for the management of Ada Conformity Assessments (previously known as "validations"). Ada language processors are tested by third-party test laboratories to verify their conformity to the Ada 95 standard. The ACAA insures that this testing is done consistently and in accordance with the Ada standard. For more information on Ada conformity testing, visit the Ada Information Clearinghouse.

Ada Rapporteur Group

The ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG9 Ada Rapporteur Group (ARG) handles comments on the Ada standard (and related standards, such as ASIS) from the general public. These comments usually concern possible errors in the standard. The ARG is tasked with resolving the errors. To do so, it creates Ada Issues.
