Moxa announced that it has joined the OpenChain Project, an initiative by the Linux Foundation to streamline open source compliance.
By enrolling as a Platinum member, Moxa becomes the first Taiwan-based company to join the OpenChain’s Governing Board, expanding the project’s reach globally and across multiple industrial sectors.
Formed in 2016, the OpenChain Specification defines inflection points in business workflows where a compliance process, policy or training should exist to minimize the potential for errors and maximize the efficiency of bringing solutions to the market. The OpenChain Specification is being prepared for submission to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and evolve from a de facto standard into a formal standard.
 “Moxa is thrilled to join the OpenChain Project so that we can demonstrate our commitment in supporting open source compliance standardization,” Andy Cheng, president of strategic business unit at Moxa, said in a prepared statement. “Moxa has been a strong supporter of the Linux Foundation for some of its important projects such as Civil Infrastructure Project (CIP) for long-term support Linux distribution. We are now looking forward to working closely with the OpenChain community to promote industry standards of open source compliance.”
“Moxa has actively participated in the OpenChain community during its key growth phase over the last two years,” said Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Moxa joining as a Platinum member underlines its commitment to further deepening industry collaboration and understanding at this critical juncture. In particular, I believe Moxa will play an important role in helping us build bridges across the Mandarin-speaking world to ensure open source compliance.”
