The Business Application Software Developer's Association announced in February 2001 the appointment of Patrick O'Beirne of System Modelling as a BASDA approved tester of application software against the BASDA EMU standard.
The second level of the BASDA standard covers account and base currency conversion to the euro, and the ability to support IEP and Euro transactions before and after the changeover.

The following packages have now been certified for BASDA EMU Accreditation by Systems Modelling, the second approved tester for certifying application software against the BASDA EMU standards.
The SML test cases are designed to highlight errors and adjustments expected to arise in the transitional period for accounting software that is adapted for the euro. They cover the "price accordion" effects, detecting the use of inverse rates, rounding, truncation, accounting with master and detail records, and account and base conversion in the transition scenario. The specific test data for any given base currency uses sensitive data points that are most likely to give rise to differences in conversion and rounding.
We place particular stress on the communications from the vendor to the customer, whether it be in documentation, training, actual conversion factories, or helpline support. The better prepared the users are, the more accurately their expectations will match the results, and the least amount of time is wasted explaining non-material differences in a post-conversion audit.
There is only a short time frame left for company conversions, and we see an increasingly obvious trend for users to leave the conversion to the last minute. The more efficient and well-justified the conversion process is, the more smoothly their customers, suppliers, auditors, and employees will experience the changeover. This can only be of benefit to the success of the entire euro project in the eurozone.
