4.1.5 - The repository shall have an ingest process which verifies each SIP for completeness and correctness.

Introduction

SP has mechanisms in place to verify the completeness and correctness of each SIP upon ingest.

Completeness

Correctness

If an error is found during the Pull Script test, an email is sent to the loader and ingest is retried or loader script is corrected. If the error persists the Provider is notified.

Documents explaining the mechanisms in greater detail are available below. Please also see SP's definition of "completeness" and "correctness" in the Glossary.
