High-level design principles related to the assurance processes
  • assurance should be lightweight but appropriate
  • testing should be automated where possible to establish technical conformance
  • a level of self-certified solution assurance will be made available to organisations deploying the APIs
  • all artefacts related to assurance and testing should be made available as part of the ecosystem (public domain) prior to engaging in a formal NHS Digital assurance process
  • a set of evidence based around self-assurance activities will speed up the assurance process
