Catena-X is Gaia-X compliant: An approach to ensure openness, transparency, and trust within the Data ecosystem.
It was clear from the start of the Catena-X Automotive Network, that the Catena-X data ecosystem will endorse the Gaia-X values and adopt all necessary standards. With the Gaia-X Summit 2022 the partnership between Gaia-X and Catena-X takes an important next step: The Catena-X eco system is ready to be Gaia-X compliant directly with its gotoMarket in Q1 2023.
One important building block to ensure Gaia-X compliance is a service called Gaia-X Digital Clearing House (GXDCH). This service has been approved by the Gaia-X European Association for Data and Cloud AISBL and will be available in the first quarter of 2023 for the Go Live of the Catena-X data ecosystem. The service supports the Catena-X onboarding process by verifying certain attributes of new participants as well as validating the correct application of the Gaia-X Trust-Framework (see graphic). With the use of the GXDCH, implementations Catena-X is fulfilling one important aspect of the latest Gaia-X Trust Framework 22 -10.
