OpenChain Conformance

The OpenChain Conformance Check is designed to assess an organization's status of conformance with a specific version of the OpenChain Specification.

This Wiki Page documents processes used internally by the OpenChain conformance workgroup.

NOTE: The processes listed below are proposed and have not yet been reviewed and approved by the conformance team.

Certification Submission Process

The follow process describes how certification requests are submitted:

  • Submissions can be made manually or through the self-certification application
  • Self-certification applications are automatically approved on submission by the user
    • Notification is sent out to the openchain-conformance distribution list on any submittal (or change in submittal status)
    • Any individual can register a disagreement with any submittal (see the Certification Rejection process)
    • Submissions are automatically displayed on the self certification website
    • The conformance volunteers will review all submissions
    • The OpenChain Program Manager will confirm the company is willing to have their logo used on the OpenChain website and will obtain a copy of 1,000px or more
  • Manual certification requests are made by emailing te openchain-conformance distribution list a completed self-certification form along with company contact information
    • TODO: Fill in the remaining tasks for the manual process

    • The submitter will be contacted to notify them of the rejection, the reason for the rejection, and steps they can take to remedy and/or appeal the rejection
    • An administrator for the self-certification website rejects the application
    • Any logos/information on the certification is removed from the primary website
