Compliance testing is the process of confirming that software applications are following applicable rules and regulations.
ITD uses a product called Compliance Sheriff from HiSoftware to automate site testing. Compliance Sheriff is a comprehensive tool that tests for accessibility, privacy, quality, and operational security. It can also test for compliance with a wide range of guidelines and standards and produce detailed reports of violations. A list of Compliance Sheriff FAQs has been compiled to assist experienced web designers with interpreting test results.
