Self-Certification Checklist for OpenChain Security Assurance Specification 1.1 Now Available

By 2022-10-14October 17th, 2022Featured, News

The OpenChain Security Assurance Specification 1.1 self-certification checklist is now available. This is designed to help organizations adopt the de facto standard for open source security assurance. Organizations using this self-certification process will also meet the requirements of the specification when it graduates the ISO/IEC JTC-1 PAS Transposition process, with an estimated arrival time of that International Standard in mid-2023.

The checklist contains a series of “yes” or “no” statements. If you can answer “yes” to everything, you are self-certified. If you answer “no” to some items, you know where to invest further time to build a quality program.
