For the successful market penetration of high temperature solid oxide fuel/electrolysis cell energy systems it is necessary to increase the quality assurance and the reliable assessment of the corresponding cells and stacks. Therefore in May 2014 the EU-funded project "SOCTESQA" was launched. The aim is to develop uniform and industry wide test programs for solid oxide cell/stack (SOC) assembly units. The paper presents the results which have been achieved so far, e.g. the development of a test matrix and of generic test modules for current-voltage curves, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and long term tests. Several of these test modules were combined to a test program and applied by the different partners to an SOC stack. The test output results (TOPs) are compared to each other and possible differences are discussed in context to differences in test input conditions (sensitivity analysis). This validation process helps to improve the generic test modules and programs.
