OpenChain Launches Monthly Newsletter

SAN FRANCISCO, UNITED STATES– (May 15th 2017) –The OpenChain Project today announces the launch of a monthly newsletter to make it quicker and easier to stay up-to-date with developments.

“OpenChain has been terrifically busy over the last few months,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “We have launched a new industry standard for supply chain compliance, we have provided a free online conformance service to the market, and we have begun translations of core material into eight languages. The OpenChain newsletter is our way of making it simple to know precisely what is happening, on what timescale, and why it matters.”

The OpenChain newsletter can be accessed online or obtained in PDF format via the OpenChain website on the 15th of each month:
