OSS License Compliance: Practical Strategies for OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020

Presented by

Shane Coughlan, GM, OpenChain (Linux Foundation)

About this talk

OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 is the international standard for open source license compliance. It’s based on six brief, straightforward sections (covering 13 core requirements) that outline how organizations can establish and maintain effective compliance. These requirements include documenting the open source you use, having a way to ensure compliance with licensing obligations, and identifying compliance program participants. Organizations which check these boxes can earn the designation “OpenChain Conformant.” On Wednesday, August 31, Shane Coughlan (GM of OpenChain) will discuss how to put your organization on the fast track to OpenChain Conformance. We’ll discuss: -The business benefits of earning OpenChain Conformance -How legal, engineering, and management teams can collaborate to fulfill requirements -What documentation is required as part of the OpenChain standard — and strategies to produce and maintain it -How automation can accelerate the journey to OpenChain Conformance
