[edit] Description

The CSV Validator is designed to allow validation of CSV files against user defined schema. It was developed at The National Archives (UK) to allow the validation of metadata files being received in CSV format. This was driven by the fact that CSV data is very easy to create for all users, via spreadsheet tools, or at worst any text editor. However, there was previously no straightforward way of checking that the received CSV files actually had the expected number of columns, or that those columns contained data of the type expected. Version 1.0 of the tool was released in July 2014, additional developer involvement is encouraged. The CSV Validator serves as reference implementation for the CSV Schema Language version 1.0, released simultaneously. Further information in post on The National Archives blog.

[CSV Schema Language version 1.1 was released on 25 January 2016, alongside CSV Validator 1.1.
