ISO 5230 - Standard on open source compliance

December 14th, 2020,  the International Standardisation Organization (ISO) publicly released ISO 5230, the first standard on open source compliance (OSC). The standard is a result of several years work of a working group under the umbrella of the linux foundation. Since several years many cope source compliance experts from leading technology organisation worldwide sat together and shaped a simple, but efficient approach on how to tackle the open source compliance challenge.

The following video – a recording of the 10 min introduction to the OpenChain project Jan held Feb 6th @ this years FOSDEM – explains the core idea of the OpenChain project and introduces the core  specification requirements  (outline of the ISO 5230).

OpenChain helps to build trust along the value chain by requiring certified participants to comply with specified requirements on how to arrange their open source usage and management. Since we are involved with OpenChain for several years now, we took the ideas and embedded them into TrustSource. Thus TrustSource is best suited to support the introduction as well as the ongoing compliance with ISO 5230, respectively the OpenChain requirements.
