Aligning the CoreTrustSeal Requirements with an assessment of repositories' ability to enable FAIR data is an important part of delivering an EOSC. Trustworthy Digital Repositories which enable FAIR data are a dependency for many components of modern, open, distributed research. This paper sets the work within the wider context of data infrastructures, describes the co-dependencies between (meta) data objects and their repository environment, and presents the developing mapping between requirements and principles. The evolving capability/maturity approach is explained and the design of a governed assessment and certification process is defined. This work will iterate alongside the wide range of ongoing data infrastructure initiatives to support a range of stakeholders on their journey towards trustworthy repository services that enable FAIR data. Extensive engagement and feedback are planned to allow us to reach this goal.
