One of the major outcomes of the former EDRM I project has been to stress the need for tools to manage data provided using the GDF exchange format. Many companies failed to supply the bench mark test with data files using GDF Version 1.0, due to a lack of certified validation tools. Reading the GDF specification documents did not appear to be sufficient to achieve the correct quality level, and too many feedbacks were necessary to ensure the minimum syntax quality. Syntax is the first barrier to overcome when trying to load a GDFile, but the task is made easier if DGF specifications are used. This report lists the five modules that constitute the GDF validation tool.s, It defines the platform requirements, specifies the software algorithms for the check procedures, and gives guidelines for a user-friendly man machine interface.
