OpenChain Project announces Japanese Study Group

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, December 15, 2017 — The OpenChain Project is delighted to announce that on the 27th of December our first Japanese Study Group will convene at the Sony Headquarters in Tokyo. Registration for the event is now open and over 20 participants from multiple companies are already confirmed.

“Internationalization has always been one of our key goals,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “The Japanese study group is a milestone in ensuring our local contributors can build out material and support for their constituency. This is an important step driven by our member companies in the region, Sony, Hitachi and Toyota, along with other interested parties.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
