The Linux Foundation has created a Compliance Verification Committee (CVC) to create a common framework for ONAP and OPNFV (OVP) Verification Programs. ONAP verification focuses on functions (virtual or physical) fitting in the ONAP framework and OPNFV Verification focuses on virtual functions fitting in the OPNFV framework. The success and realization of these programs is driven by carrier or end user requirements. We will review the goals and values of CVC and discuss with carriers their views on value and priorities for these programs.

Some questions to answer will be around:
1. Do we need another compliance program?
2. What is the carrier business value?
3. What are the priorities for ONAP? for OPNFV?
4. What is missing for ONAP? For OPNFV?
