The validation process is carried out by the Ada certification body. This body consists of the Ada Joint Program Office (AJPO), the Ada Validation Organization (AVO), and the AJPO-recognized Ada Validation Facilities (AVFs).
The AJPO provides validation guidance, issues validation certificates for AVF-tested Ada implementations, maintains the Ada Compiler Validation Capability (ACVC), maintains the Ada Validated Compilers List (VCL), reviews all Validation Summary Reports (VSRs), reviews and adjudicates (with the assistance of the AVO) all disputes regarding the Ada test instrument, and maintains current operating agreements with the AVFs.
For more information on the compiler validation process, please consult the latest version of the Ada Validation Procedures.
