OCPI 2.2 is an important step forward. Nevertheless, the community is already looking ahead, because developments in this field are progressing rapidly. Responding to these developments remains important. OCPI continues to evolve.
In December 2019 the first design setup of OCPI 3.0 was published. Version 3.0 will contain major changes, mainly in the architecture. This will improve the efficiency of OCPI. Further developments and steps for OCPI 3.0 will be made via the participants in the new evRoaming foundation. We aim to have the first draft available by the end of 2020. If you wish to receive the design setup document of OCPI 3.0, please sign the CLA (below).

CLA/ IPR policy
OCPI should be royalty-free for everyone, without any party claiming intellectual property rights. That is the clear vision of the EVRoaming Foundation. To ensure that OCPI will be IPR-free, an IPR policy has been set up that will be distributed through a so-called Contributor License Agreement (CLA). All parties that want to participate in OCPI developments will be asked to sign and agree to this CLA.
