A critical element of the Consumer Data Right (CDR) ecosystem is the successful operation of participant technology solutions. Testing should take place to prepare for upcoming CDR releases and to ensure the continuous integrity and operation of the CDR ecosystem.
The CDR regime is evolving, with the number of participants and the scope of the regime increasing. This means the approach to testing Phase 1 and Phase 2 to prove ecosystem capability is no longer appropriate.
Going forward, the CDR test approach will focus on automated testing through the ACCC CDR Conformance Test Suite (CTS). This is a scalable, automated approach that serves as a final checkpoint and relies on appropriate internal participant testing to be completed prior to commencing conformance testing.
For more information, participants should refer to Appendix 2 of the CDR On-boarding Guide and the CDR Test Strategy for an outline of the ACCC’s test approach. This is applicable both for participants that are looking enter the ecosystem (new participants) and participants that are already part of the ecosystem (existing participants).
