    As a part of Finnish nuclear research program SAFIR2010 a project called CERFAS started in 2007 to define necessary software certification services for nuclear industry needs. Main areas of the service development activities are process assessment and product evaluation. Several additional modules and methods may be needed and will be developed during the project. During 2007 the project produced three state-of-the-art reports and evaluated certification schemes also in other domains. In 2008 a first draft of the service was developed and piloted in an industrial case. The main purpose of CERFAS is to develop facilities for a consortium called Software Certification Service. Conditions for services of consortium are the application of diverse expertise and effective evaluation tools. This leads into networking both in the project and in the certification services.
