That's complicated. OGC decided that we would require our reference implementations (RIs) to be open source. However, all our standards don't have RIs.
The list of standards with "official" reference implementations is at http://cite.opengeospatial.org/reference. (we don't have 52 North on there yet as the Sensor Observation Service RI).
All the "major" standards have RIs, so you might say something like "OGC's most mature standards use open source reference implementations..."
