FTO has introduced a self-certification process modeled after the EU’s Safe Harbour Compliance Framework. Using the simple registration form below, a research supplier may self certify its offshoring practices by activity, country, and provider relationship (e.g., captive vs. third party).
Participating research organizations receive one of two verification seals. The first seal certifies research organizations that offshore services and have complied with FTO disclosure standards; the second seal identifies research organizations that do not offshore.
Certification is free. Only corporate officers may certify their supplier organization below. Client side researchers may express their support for FTO here.
