The printed edition found below was certified by the premier institute of Sunni Islam, al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt.  Some details from the publishers:

“A full-time team of qualified Hadith specialists has been working on the creation of a properly-edited and reliable text. Further, the process has benefited from the guidance of living Hadith authorities. The result has been the first critically-edited versions of the Hadith literature ever produced.

This long overdue scholarly production has met with acclaim and admiration from Hadith specialists around the world and opens new possibilities for research into early Islamic history, into Arabic literature, and into the complex disciplines of Islamic doctrine, law, and spirituality.”

      Sadly this information is hard to ascertain. It is best if you contact the publishers directly. Wassalam
