LDAP Certified Summary of Registration Requirements
A Trademark License Agreement (TMLA) must be in place or accompany the
application. Please be aware that this is a legal agreement and lawyers tend to want
to examine it carefully. This can take time, so we strongly recommend that you start the
process for your company to sign the TMLA as early as possible before you apply for
A Product Standard Registration application Form must be completed and signed together
with payment or purchase order if fees are due. Please note:
If your company is a current member of The Open Group with Directory Interoperability work
area entitlement plus a VSLDAP test suite license together with a current support
contract, then there is no registration fee. Please enter N/A in the 'Total' for the
fees on the Registration Form.
