    POSIX® certification is about to take another step forward. The Open Group and The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA) will offer a program to certify products to the 2003 edition of IEEE 1003.1TM-2001, "Standard for Information Technology-Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX)," which incorporates the IEEE 1003.1 Corrigendum. The new program updates the existing one and will take effect early November.

    Under the new program, suppliers will substantiate claims of conformance to POSIX based on defined test suites so buyers gain assurance that products they specify and procure meet the standard and are warranted by the vendor to do so. POSIX certification complements certifications for other products that draw on the POSIX standard, such as those for LSB®, the COE Platform and the UNIX® system.

    The IEEE-SA and The Open Group have long experience with standards and certifications. IEEE-SA, a leading global standards development organization, has been the certification authority for POSIX since January 1998. The Open Group operates eight major certification programs, including those for UNIX and LSB. It has also developed and maintained conformance test suites for the X Window System, Motif®, Linux and other technologies.
