IMS Global Learning Consortium Validators

IMS Global produces several valdiators, available free-of-charge so that you can perform your own testing against many different IMS Global specifications. This validation may be used to apply for IMS certification conformance. IMS certification means that the supplier supports and has committed to working with the IMS community to actively resolve issues that may arise. All IMS Conformant Products have a Conformance Registration Number. Ensure that the specific version of a product you are considering is certified. Ask for the certification number in proposals. You can search here by entering the certification number provided by your supplier to confirm a conformance certification has been issued by IMS and is current. IMS only certifies specific named products and specific versions of those products. For more information about achieving conformance, visit the alliance areas listed below.
