OpenChain Self-Certification is designed to assess the status of OpenChain Conformance in relation to a specific version of the OpenChain Specification. Organizations of any size can accomplish Self-Certification through the OpenChain Project Online Self-Certification Web App. A company that completes the Online Self-Certification confirms they meet the OpenChain Specification requirements.
A link to the OpenChain Online Self-Certification can be found here: https://certification.openchainproject.org/
Please note: The Online Self-Certification is currently focused on the pre-release OpenChain Specification 1.1: https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/_media/openchain/openchainspec-1.1.draft.pdf
If you wish to Self-Certify to the current release of the OpenChain Specification 1.0 you can do so manually using this document: https://wiki.linuxfoundation.org/_media/openchain/openchainspec-current.pdf
Follow the Getting Started instructions on the OpenChain Conformance website: OpenChain Conformance website
You will see an Unsubmit button at the bottom of the page after signing in to the Online Self-Certification site. Clicking this button will cancel your previous OpenChain Self-Certification submission. You can then re-submit the conformance check.
Artifacts are a tangible by-product of implementing OpenChain conformance policies. These can include digital documents, websites or paper documents public or private. All Artifacts should be verified internally by the organization using them.
Email email@example.com with the name of the organization you are concerned about and the reason you disagree with their submission. You should expect a response within 4 weeks.
If all information is correct, the submittal will automatically be approved by the system. Any omissions or incorrect answers will be reported by the user.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any issues. Please include specific information on the issue you have encountered.
