Dear OCP Community
OCP is excited to announce some great changes. The OCP Foundation, along with our Incubation Committee (IC) and our Volunteer Leadership, has been working overtime to update some key documents. We wanted to inform you of these changes as they will impact future specification contributions and OCP product recognition program requirements. There are 2 changes that we wanted to inform you about - one on process and one on our volunteer leadership. All of these are reflected on our website as of today but will be effective on July 7th.
Legal - Changes were made to some of our process/legal documents to address the growing demands of our community and the complex contributions by multiple parties. Redlines for these can be made available upon request.
2021 Specification Template effective July 7, 2021
Changes were made to the Specification Template to adhere to the OCP Strategic Initiatives as decided by the IC around security, firmware and hardware management.
All contributors must fill out Appendix A in the 2021 Specification Template prior to presenting to the IC for approval.
2021 Supplier Requirements effective July 7, 2021
All Suppliers seeking any OCP product recognition must fill out Appendix B of the 2021 Specification Template upon which their product is based.
All Suppliers must also fill out the 2021 Supplier Requirements for their products.
