A new Pilot Partner Program has Launched, More OpenChain Conformant Organizations; More Translations. Our community is continuing to grow and we are laying the foundation for long-term sustainability.

OpenChain Partners

We have launched a Pilot Partner Program to foster commercial activity around the OpenChain Project. The pilot will run throughout 2017 prior to the broader release of the partner program in 2018. Our goal is to ensure that anyone, anywhere can self-certify to OpenChain Specifications, but also that professional help is available if and when wanted. Learn more here:
