NPFC - MIL-STD-882
STANDARD PRACTICE SYSTEM SAFETY
|Publication Date:||11 May 2012|
This document outlines a standard practice for conducting system safety.
The system safety practice as defined herein conforms to the acquisition procedures in DoD Regulation 5000.2-R and provides a consistent means of evaluating identified risks. Mishap risk must be identified, evaluated, and mitigated to a level acceptable (as defined by the system user or customer) to the appropriate authority and compliant with federal (and state where applicable) laws and regulations, Executive Orders, treaties, and agreements. Program trade studies associated with mitigating mishap risk must consider total life cycle cost in any decision. When requiring MIL-STD-882 in a solicitation or contract and no specific paragraphs of this standard are identified, then apply only those requirements presented in section 4.
This standard establishes a common basis for expectations of a properly executed system safety effort.
