The ACORD Testing and Certification Facility (TCF) is a live application which you can interact with as a developer in order to test and certify your implementations of ACORD messages.
TCF has two modes: message-only certification and business trading partner certification. The message-only certification simply checks your XML message to see if it follows the various rules required by the standards. The business trading partner certification allows you to interact with TCF as a "virtual" business partner, allowing you to send ACORD messages to the TCF for validation and receive responses indicating acceptance or error(s). The TCF can also send messages to you and accept your responses.
ACORD staff will monitor your test messages at a detailed level and help you analyze successful and unsuccessful tests. If you are new to web services or ACORD messaging and need more help in getting started, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the primary method of certification for GRLC implementations. ACORD staff will interact with you throughout the testing/certification process. Initially we will plan the session and confirm connectivity between you and the ACORD TCF server. On an ongoing basis ACORD will check messages you send, advise of any issues, and generate response messages back to you. If you are a receiver, ACORD can also send messages to you and check your responses.
