This paper is the result of an evaluation of an organisation as a Trusted Repository. The evaluation was carried out in November 2007, using parts of the existing guidelines concerning the certification of Trusted Repositories. The contributions of are 1) findings on organisation concerning its commitment towards its stakeholders and archival holdings and 2) findings about repository evaluation. The findings show that a highly committed and competent organisation is reliable as a trusted repository and there is a need of continuity evaluating digital repositories since an evaluation does not show the reliability of an organisation as a trusted repository in the long-term.
