Functional Conformance

An OBIE Functional Conformance Certificate allows an Implementer to demonstrate that they have successfully implemented all required functional elements of the OBIE Read/Write API Specifications, passing all tests performed by the Functional Conformance Tool


  • The Implementer must follow version 3.1 or later of the OBIE API Specifications and use the Functional Conformance Tool to test their implementation.
  • The Implementer must use the latest published version of the Functional Conformance Tool, for more information, please see the release notes.
  • The Implementer must submit full (zip) results generated using the Dockerised image of the tool.
  • The Implementer must submit results with JWS signature enabled.  
  • The Implementer must be running the latest tagged image of the Functional Conformance Tool following the Quickstart
  • The Implementer must submit all files generated by the tool, including:
    • A digitally signed attestation form to confirm that all evidence submitted is accurate and has not been altered in any way.
    • A discovery configuration file (defining which endpoints and data elements have been implemented for each).
    • A manifest of test cases run (for each test run, a description, pass/fail flag, and link to relevant specification reference is provided).
    • A log of the context of each test (e.g. permission scopes, header and response payloads, but with all sensitive data removed).

Number of Certificates needed

It is up to each Implementer as to how many Conformance Certificates they apply for.

For ASPSPs, each Certificate covers one base URL (e.g. This URL may include multiple brands and/or products, each with separate endpoints and data elements. It is up to the Implementer to ensure they have run and submitted sufficient tests which cover all relevant brands/products as part of their Certification Request.

An ASPSP may have other brands/products on separate base URLs which have the exact same functionality, and may decide to declare that these bands/products are also covered by a single Certificate. However OBIE will only publish the Certificate based on the single base URL submitted by the Implementer.
