Standard for Software Safety

This standard applies to software safety during the development, procurement, maintenance, and retirement of safety-critical software; for example, software products whose failure could cause loss of life, serious harm, or have widespread negative social impact. This standard requires that software safety be considered within the context of the system safety program throughout the software lifecycle. The scope of this standard includes only the safety aspects of the software. This standard also discusses aspects of software safety related to interoperation with other systems or constituents of a system of systems.
