Hi Alexandre,

There is a CITE (Compliance and Interoperability Test Engine) which is 
used to test reference implementations for OGC specs, including WCS. You 
can get the engine from:


To get the tests for wcs you need to sign up for an account on the OGC 
portal.I am not sure if they are publicly available elsewhere.

The easiest way (if you are interested) is probably to send a message to 
the CITE forum:

cite-forum at lists.opengeospatial.org

And state that you want access to the tests.
