This criteria catalogue primarily addresses cultural heritage organizations, federal archives, libraries and museums and is designed as a guideline for the planning and setup of a digital long-term preservation repository. Secondarily, this catalogue can be an orientation guide for software developers, third party vendors or service provides from the private sector. The nestor catalugue focuses on its applicability in Germany . Still, it must be discussed internationally and should adhere to international standards.
