Michael,
thanks for this information.
With regard to the use of CTS, my concern here is that this is
certification of the container for the data, and thus is less relevant to
the data that people use. After all, the WG is not Assessment of Data
Repository Fitness for Use...
I'll have a look at the spreadsheet and see what useful comments I can make.

Dear Andrew, Helena, others,
The DANS FAIR data assessment tool is designed to be applicable by both groups (data custodians and data re-users), and perhaps also as a self assessment by the depositor, to see how FAIR his/her data are. But we are still working on a 2nd prototype,
Peter
