OpenChain Project featured at Legal Network Roundtable

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, December 5, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured at the Legal Network Roundtable held at the Amadeus offices in France on the 12th of December. Malcolm Bain, Partner from ID Law Partners will deliver a talk entitled ‘Introduction to Open Chain and the Role of Compliance into the Supply Chain as part of a Strong Governance Program”‘ between 2:45 and 3:15 pm.

“Malcolm’s work to explain and share the OpenChain Project is an important component of our end of year positioning,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “OpenChain is gearing up to have a busy 2018 as we seek to scale our community of conformance. Clearly communicating our approach and goals is key to accomplishing our goals.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
