OpenChain ISO 5230 is the international standard for open source license compliance and has been adopted by companies like Microsoft, Hitachi, and LF Electronics. It has particular impact in areas like automotive, with Scania Corporate Standard 4589 (STD 4589) explicitly requiring it alongside SPDX, itself a draft ISO standard. This talk will explore how this activity fits into topics such as the recent US Executive Order on Cyber Security and related market developments. The audience will come away with a clear understanding of the state of the art around processes and bill of materials in this space, and how things tie together with automation and overarching supply chain management.
