Great Britain Office of Fair Trading has launched an investigation into Oracle Corp.'s certification business. The watchdog's investigation was prompted by a compliant in November 2002 that Oracle's policy on 9i certification was an abuse of its dominant position in the market. In particular, the complaint questions the validity of Oracle's decision to allow only those who take Oracle's own training to obtain 9i certification, on the grounds that it ensures those taking the examination have the skills.
