FAQ 27: Can IATF CARA files be only loaded in the same browsers?

Files like Json and xml used in the IATF CARA project are simple text files which only provide a rule set on how data structures have to be saved. These files have no information about the application/browser they were created in. If this information is not specifically added. An IATF CARA file is neutral of this information. If the same software version is used the files created in IATF CARA running in Chrome/Edge or any other browser will be identical.

There is no requirement for auditors or clients to use the same browser so the data can be properly read, because the data is the same.
