Seeking public comments for the OpenChain specification ISO format version 2.1

Mark Gisi

We are seeking public comments for the next version of OpenChain specification which will conclude on December 10th.


For those new to the specification  - The OpenChain project has developed  a specification that defines a core set of requirements that a trusted open source compliance program is expected to satisfy.   To obtain a better understanding of the goals and the context in which the specification was developed before providing feedback, you can review the following FAQ list.


The big change over the current 2.0 version was reformatting the document layout into one acceptable for ISO submission and adoption.  Other than very minor clarification edits, the content has largely remained unchanged. If a company is conformant with version 2.0 - they would remain conformant with 2.1.


The current draft is available at:


Past readers of the spec might find the marked up version useful:    


You can send feedback via:

·        the Mailing list: the list;

·        the issues wiki: issues list; or

·        replying to me directly if you wish to remain anonymous (mark.gisi@...)
