The comparison of dummy qualification data sets coming from different sources is complicated even if the ISO-MME (ISO/TS 1399) format is used. This standard describes the general data format but some essential information such as coding of the channels, definition of t0 is not standardized.

PDB made a proposal to standardize the missing information to get data sets that can be used for analyzes without any additional data processing.

The proposals are made for the use with THOR-50M and WorldSID 50%. They are based on the information that is provided with existing qualification procedures.

The first version of the instructions including example data sets will be revised in Summer 2022 (based on some user feedback). Updated documents will be posted on this website soon. The current version will be available on request only.
