The core of the certification is a multidisciplinary and user-focused reference system of 240 web Q.A rules**. These community-driven rules have evolved since 2004, when they were created, and are available under a creative commons license.

Opquast founder Elie Sloïm, and author of “Qualité Web : la références des professionnels du Web” (by Eyrolles) gives his insight. "The web industry and the users have to deal with very risky subjects like privacy, accessibility, security, and ecodesign. When an industry starts to encounter major risks that’s the time for quality assurance. Opquast is that first step in deploying a web QA culture by giving web professionals a common and multidisciplinary foundation to improve their skills and to take control of their web projects.”
