OSEGeV Conformity Assessment Body for Open Source Hardware looking for Reviewers

Hello GOSH Community

My name is Nils and I am speaking for Open Source Ecology Germany e.V. (#OSEG). I would like to introduce you to our current project, the Conformity Assessment Body (#CAB). The project is continuing the first approach presented in this thread: Open Source Ecology Germany is looking for volunteer reviewers.

:slot_machine: What’s this about
Open Source Hardware (#OSH) names physical artefacts with blueprints published under free and open licenses. The #DINSPEC3105 is a pilot project to create the first official standard for OSH and make it a reliable size. The OSEG CAB is the first prototype of the assessment procedure attempting to confirm the reproducibility of OSH.

The DIN SPEC 3105 was already discussed in this thread: Contribute to the development of an international open source hardware standard - #6 by Moe

:mag_right: What we are looking for
Currently we are looking for reviewers that help us assess the documentations of technologies to ensure their reproducibility. Reviewers are experts in different fields of technology, like electronics and mechanical engineering that are able to evaluate the quality of the documentation. The specific requirements depend on the projects. We can offer a small compensation for each review!
