The KAVAS framework for assessment of semantic aspects of knowledge is outlined. It is composed of a set of orthogonal perspectives (each containing several concepts), of which a subset will be presented. Although it was designed for the assessment of Knowledge-Based Systems in medicine, it is generally applicable. It has close relation with the work item 2.10 of CEN/TC251/WG2, named "Certification of KBS development and evaluation".
