MISRA is pleased to announce the availability of an additional resource for MISRA C, MISRA C ADC Approved deviation compliance for MISRA C:2004.
MISRA C is intended to be used within the framework of a disciplined software development process. The MISRA C:2004 guidelines (Section 4.3.2) permit controlled deviation from the rules when software safety and/or quality requirements cannot otherwise be satisfied.
It should be understood that a deviation can only be adequately justified when supported by information such as:
- An appropriate reason for the need to raise a deviation;
- A description of the extent to which a relaxation of the rule is being introduced;
- An argument to support the reasons for the deviation;
- Measures which must be observed to ensure safety and/or quality.
