Vendor ID

This very important number, known inside ODVA as the VID, is the unique number assigned by ODVA to your company indicating to industry that your company is an official ODVA Licensed Vendor. There is a one-to-one association between your company’s TOU and the VID assigned to your company. The VID will be recorded in the firmware for your product, distributed by ODVA in its electronic file listing of Licensed Vendors with ODVA CONFORMANT™ products, and reported on ODVA’s website in its information about Licensed Vendors and ODVA CONFORMANT™ products. You can order together with your specification or wait.
