Getting Your App Certified

At the heart of the OSDU Forum is the Certification Program, which is designed to ensure the standardization of product delivery to the OSDU community.  This community includes Operator companies, OSDU Platform Providers, Software Vendors, Data Service Companies and other member organizations.  To best enable the collaborative success of the community, the current scope of the OSDU Certification Program encompasses three domains:

Platform Provider Certification:  Ensures that all OSDU-Certified Platform Providers deliver a consistent, conformant implementation of the intended OSDU Platform, to enable a stable foundation for the OSDU community to build upon

Third-Party Data Provider Certification: Ensures that all OSDU-Certified Third-Party Data Providers offer a consistent, OSDU-friendly method of accessing data for consumption within any OSDU Platform implementation. This enables data service companies to easily leverage OSDU to reach a broad market base

Application Provider Certification: Ensures that all OSDU-Certified software offerings conform to a set of Standards in order to provide the OSDU community with secure & reliable innovation that can be used uniformly across Platform Provider implementations.  A set of conformance guidelines are also provided to help advise software vendors of best practices for interacting with native OSDU Platform Services

If you are interested in exploring the OSDU Certification Program deeper, or would like to understand how to obtain OSDU certification for your product offering, please refer to the Certification Policy & FAQs.  For each of the Certification Domains, more detailed procedural information is also available in the respective Certification Guides.
