This paper presents a discussion of some of the common
issues encountered when attempting to express software
safety requirements across complex supply chains. Many of
these issues originate from un-stated expectations or
unjustified assumptions on the part of the varied stakeholders,
primarily relating to the expected stakeholder relationships
and communication. We present a taxonomy of archetypal
problems which can arise from the presence of such
assumptions, and discuss how these might be addressed.
