Openbravo can be involved on getting regulatory certifications applicable to an Openbravo solution in a given country.
In that sense, Openbravo is disposed to do a proper use of the "Laboratoire national de métrologoie et d'essaiss" (LNE) mark in regards to the "Cash Register system Certification" for France.

As part of this certification, below listed "regulatory" documentation has been created for the proper operation of cash register systems in France, and shared with the LNE:

File:Spécifications fonctionnelles v2.pdf

File:Spécifications techniques v3.pdf

File:Manual d'utilisation v3.pdf

File:Guide de l'administration fiscale v3.pdf

File:Manuel d'exploitation v3.pdf

File:Maintenance v3.pdf

File:Manuel d'utilisation Openbravo Web POS v1.pdf

Hereby, Openbravo agrees to retain above listed regulatory documentation for three full years after the year in which the software or cash register system ceases to be marketed.

Project.png Openbravo Projects

Openbravo is 100% modular. A module is a piece of additional functionality that can be deployed optionally and independently on top of Openbravo.

Examples of modules include additional reports, additional windows, connectors, and content packs (translations, chart of accounts, list of tax codes, product categories, etc).

For more information on creating modules, please see the Developer's Guide. Modules are installed from the Module Management window within Openbravo itself.

Projects to deliver Openbravo modules are hosted on the Openbravo Forge.

To find a project, search the Project Directory. You will find the search feature on the left hand side of the Openbravo Forge main page.

A full list of modules can be found here.

The Openbravo Exchange is the marketplace for published modules.
