The European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Space Weather (SWE) Portal provides users with access to space weather services built upon a large variety of products, tools and alerting together with expert user support and guidance. Understanding the performance of the different service elements under a range of space weather conditions is essential to providing reliable information to end users. In the frame of SSA Period 3 activities, an initial set of 'Guidelines for common validation in the SSA SWE Network' have been developed by a working group consisting of representatives of the SWE Expert Service Centres with the aim to provide a common basis for future validation campaigns. This poster presents preliminary results from application of the suggested techniques and metrics on a sample of products available via the SWE Portal for the period of heightened space weather activity observed during September 2017. The cross-domain project demonstrates the applicability of the suggested validation techniques, whilst also identifying any ambiguities in the terminology used within the guidelines themselves. As a result of these tests, information on the performance of the analysed products during this heightened period of space weather is also provided.
