F.7. Testing

160. As indicated in the guiding principles, the profile should make statements that are testable. An attempt should be made to make any testable assertions in SIPs explicit in a similar way to the WS-I profiles, i.e. by highlighting the testable assertions and even codifying them such that an end user of the SIP can run them against their service to check conformance. It should also be possible to come up with testing tools and scenarios similar to those defined by the WS-I for the Basic Profile[6].

161. It needs to be decided how formal testing could be organized. Possibilities include dedicated testing body, multinational venues and exercises (like CWIX) and others.
