Defence Standard 00-56 Issue 4 is the current contractual safety standard
for UK MOD projects. It requires the production of a structured argument,
supported by diverse evidence, to show that a system is safe for a defined purpose
within a defined environment. This paper introduces a Standard of Best Practice
which has been produced by the Software Systems Engineering Initiative to provide
guidance for software compliance with Defence Standard 00-56 Issue 4.
