IAV Announces Adoption of ISO/IEC 5230:2020

IAV GmbH has announced adoption of ISO/IEC 5230:2020 via third-party certification provided by TimeToAct. Adjacent to this, IAV and TimeToAct are collaborating with the OpenChain Project on a webinar and case study about the certification rationale and process.

“The exceptional progress of OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 in improving trust in the open source supply chain has been felt in many industries,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project General Manager. “However, automotive is perhaps where we have had the largest and broadest impact. In a sector with a high degree of regulation, our ISO standard for open source license compliance offers a clear, effective and efficient method of containing risk. We are delighted to welcome IAV GmbH to our community of conformance, and to have had the opportunity to collaborate with our official partner TimeToAct on sharing this news with others. Our forthcoming webinar and case study adjacent to the certification provides a useful tool for other companies seeking to align behind international standards for open source business process management.”

The case study will be released and the webinar will take place at 10:00 CEST on the 16th of July. Learn more about this from the OpenChain Global Calendar on our participation page.
