All projects at the Eclipse Foundation are developed under a process that conforms to the ISO 5230 standard, making them full OpenChain conformant.

The OpenChain ISO 5230 standard is officially known as the OpenChain 2.1 ISO/IEC 5230:2020 standard and is based on the OpenChain Project. The goal of this project is to provide a clear and effective standard for organizations of all sizes, in all industries, and in all markets to benefit from a more efficient and effective open source supply chain.

OpenChain Conformance for Eclipse Foundation Project Adopters

OpenChain Conformance is all about building trust in the open source software throughout the entire supply chain. Knowing that all Eclipse Foundation projects are OpenChain Conformant helps open source become predictable, understandable and optimized for internal and external supply chains of any type.

ISO5230 conformance helps businesses:

  • Easily adopt open-source and commercial products based on the conforming components
  • Meet ISO5230 requirements in commercial RFQs
  • Learn from our conformance processes as they implement their own ISO5230 conformance processes
  • Get to market faster by using the Eclipse Foundation’s technologies developed under established and mature processes

OpenChain conformance is just one more way the Eclipse Foundation is helping drive innovation with commercially viable open source software.
