Welcome to the Open Connectivity Foundation Certification Management System (CMS).


Export Controls and Sanctions Compliance Information

Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is committed to full compliance with all U.S. laws and regulations, and the laws of all other applicable jurisdictions, related to international trade activities, including the export, reexport and transfer (in-country) of its items (including hardware, software, and technology). The OCF Conformance Test Tool software is subject to U.S. Export Control jurisdiction and may also be subject to the laws and regulations of other jurisdictions. To promote compliance with U.S. laws, OCF will not provide this software to any person or entity identified on U.S., EU, or UK restricted party lists, or to any entity non-named entity subject to such restrictions on account of ownership, control, or other relationship to a named entity, or to any person otherwise ineligible to receive items subject to U.S. export controls without authorization.  OCF will also not provide the OCF Conformance Test Tool software to any sanctioned country or region (which as of April 2022 includes Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, the Crimea region of Ukraine, and the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) and the Luhansk People's Republic (LNR) regions of Ukraine (each a “sanctioned country” or “sanctioned region”)). OCF has restricted download access to the OCF Conformance Test Tool software, however if you are a restricted party or located in a sanctioned country or sanctioned region and have obtained access to this download link, we instruct you not to download this software. For all users, we encourage you to consult with your company’s export control resources to determine any restrictions on your use or further transmission of the software.

Notice to Members engaged in Testing:

The U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR) prohibit the unauthorized release of unpublished  “technology,” as defined in the EAR, to representatives of entities on the EAR’s Entity List, without first obtaining a license.  Our understanding is that test results, as such, generally do not contain “technology” because they are generally descriptions of a product’s status or capabilities.  Discussions about how to use or interpret or apply the test results, however, based on our understanding, could result in the creation and sharing of information that could rise in many cases to the level of “technology.” Determining whether any particular information constitutes “technology,” as defined, can be a difficult case-by-case effort and must therefore be handled by your company’s compliance officials or legal counsel.  Thus, a Member should consult with its in-house compliance department, legal counsel or officials before it begins discussions with other Members about test results to avoid export of technology to entities on the EAR’s Entity List.
