The OpenChain Project is delighted to announce that TÜV SÜD has joined the OpenChain Partner Program, and is the first certification authority to do so. TÜV SÜD has been in communication with the OpenChain Project and our Platinum Members for several months, and today announced that they have formally completed OpenChain Conformant third-party certification for Hitachi.
TPS Standard PPP 15001A has been created by TÜV SÜD for OpenChain Conformant third-party certification. Certification services for this standard are being offered globally by TÜV SÜD. Interested parties should contact Andreas Bärwald, Head of Software Solutions at TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH. Interested parties in Japan can contact TÜV SÜD Japan.
Please note that OpenChain Conformance is not tied to third-party certification. This is a service optionally available to companies who wish to seek it. We are glad to work closely with TÜV SÜD on this service and look forward to collaborating with other certification authorities as we continue to expand globally.
