The OpenChain Project has an extensive global community that involves thousands of companies collaborating to make the supply chain quicker, more effective and more efficient. We work together to create trust between entities around open source.

The main thing we do is maintain ISO/IEC 5230:2020, the International Standard for open source license compliance.

Everyone is invited to be part of what we do. There are no restrictions to join our mailing lists, our calls and most of our events.

To help orientate you in our community let’s talk about the structure.

  1. We have Platinum Members that fund the project and act as our board.
  2. We have our general community of participant companies, organizations and individuals.
  3. We have our Community of Conformance where companies announce their adoption of our ISO/IEC standard.
  4. And we have an official Partner Program where vendors who know our standard and our community are ready to support you.
