Ada Conformity Assessment Authority

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 Standard. The ACAA ensures that this testing is done consistently and in accordance with appropriate standards.
