The ODA aims to pre-empt and prevent problems by testing members against our Code of Practice before they can come into membership – and afterwards.
Membership is open to all those who commit themselves to the principles in the ODA Code of Practice and who can demonstrate this commitment to our policies and processes.
Member companies include business based in the US, Continental Europe and Australia.
