Tony is correct: OASIS does not have a mechanism for performing
conformance tests, nor does it want to get into this business because of
the liability concerns.

OASIS does, however, encourage the development of conformance tests for
TC specifications which can be used by vendors and others to do their
own testing. The OASIS Conformance TC
(http://oasis-open.org/committees/ioc/), chaired by Lynn Rosenthal of
NIST, produces guidelines for the creation of conformance tests and can
be a very useful resource to you. I strongly urge you to take advantage
of their expertise.
