Beneficial Ownership Visualisation System

Publication type


Implementation, Technology


The Beneficial Ownership Visualisation System (BOVS) specifies how to illustrate beneficial ownership structures using a BOVS Diagram. It is designed to visualise these structures as clearly as possible.

Open Ownership offers the BOVS diagram specifications to anyone building visualisations of beneficial ownership structures with the aim of helping people choose how to represent different aspects of ownership. The specifications are compatible with any brand, style, colour scheme, or language, and are provided under the GNU Free Documentation License.
