As per a report by Thomasnet, Moxa announced that it has joined the OpenChainProject. This is an initiative by the Linux Foundation to streamline open source compliance.

It will help to expand the project’s reach globally and across multiple industrial sectors.
Open source license compliance
The OpenChain Project was formed in 2016. It aims to build trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent across supply chains. The OpenChain Specification defines inflection points in business workflows where a compliance process, policy or training should exist. This is done to minimise the potential for errors and maximise the efficiency of bringing solutions to the market.
The report said that Moxa has demonstrated for many years its commitment to open source compliance that will enable advanced industrial networking and communications applications for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) world. Andy Cheng, president of strategic business unit at Moxa said that the company 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. It is now looking to working closely with the OpenChain community to promote industry standards of open source compliance.
