2.1 WMS Service name

2 star accreditation requirement

For a 2 star accredited service, the service must conform to these naming protocols.

The service name is defined by the OGC WMS specification as follows:

For WMS version 1.1.1 the service name MUST be: OGC:WMS

For WMS version 1.3.0 the service name MUST be: WMS

Your WMS software should automatically create the correct service name (as above), but you should double check the GetCapabilities response, and amend if required.
