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 appropriate standards.
Information resources about the ACAA and its operation. Articles, FAQs,
and detailed procedures can be found here.

The Ada Conformity Assessment Test Suite (ACATS) is the test suite used
for Ada processor conformity testing. This site includes the official versions
of the test files. Download the most recent version of the test suite,

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 and enhancements for the standard.
The ARG is tasked with resolving the errors and considering the enhancements.
