Abstract: Open Source Software (OSS) component certification is a prerequisite for the reuse of these components in diverse application domains. However, a particular challenge for software development Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) is the usually unacceptable high cost of certification which contradicts the economic benefits of OSS reuse. The OPEN-SME European funded project introduces an OSS software reuse service for SMEs in which SME Associations act as reuse service providers of OSS components for their member SMEs. In this work we describe the reuse and certification services of the OPEN-SME project for trustworthy OSS components, that aligns the benefits of OSS reuse with an effective reduction of the certification costs. Cost reduction is achieved with (a) The smaller scale of the certification subject (i.e. components instead of systems), (b) The use of a carefully selected toolset that increases automation and minimizes the human involvement as much as possible, and (c) The econo mies of scale introduced by the sharing of application domain specific components from a number of SMEs developing applications for the same application domain.
