Does anyone have a script that can validate the feature table in genbank files against the format specification by INSDC found here? 

Also, I only need it for bacterial genomes, plasmids.

Thanks Chris. The feature table is what I'm interested in -- I don't care about the rest of the file. Edited my question as such.

That is a description of the feature table format, which is part of a GenBank file; it could be validated on its own. However, there isn't a specification for 'GenBank format' as a whole as far as I know; without that it's hard to validate (an example file exists but definitely can't be used for validation as it covers a single case and doesn't deal with variations such as WGS assembly master records).
