This International Standard provides guidance for organizations in the application of ISO 9001:2000 to the acquisition, supply, development, operation and maintenance of computer software and related support services. It does not add to or otherwise change the requirements of ISO 9001:2000.
Annex A (informative) provides a table pointing to additional guidance in the implementation of ISO 9001:2000 available in ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 and ISO/TC 176 standards.
The guidelines provided in this International Standard are not
intended to be used as assessment criteria in quality management
The application of this International Standard is appropriate to software that is
- part of a commercial contract with another organization,
- a product available for a market sector,
- used to support the processes of an organization,
- embedded in a hardware product, or
- related to software services.
Some organizations may be involved in all of the above activities; others may specialize in one area. Whatever the situation, the organization's quality management system should cover all aspects (software related and nonsoftware related) of the business.
