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 (TDR) 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. 

Feedback is welcomed either directly to the authors or on the Google Doc.

The CoreTrustSeal+FAIR overview itself is published and managed as a separate document.
