Def Stan 00-55 Requirements for Safety Related Software in Defence Equipment


Issue 2 of Parts 1 and 2 of Def Stan 00-55 "Requirements for Safety Related Software in Defence Equipment" were released on 1st August 1997 by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence.

This safety standard covers the development of software in safety-critical systems, filling a similar role to Part 3 of AS 61508 "Functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems".

Def Stan 00-55 is generally used within a wider safety standard such as Def Stan 00-56 Safety Management Requirements for Defence Systems.

This standard has been superseded since Issue 3 of Def Stan 00-56 Safety Management Requirements for Defence Systems, but is still referred to for information.
