ISO 25051 – Ready-made Software Quality Requirements and Testing Instructions

ISO/IEC 25051:2014 specifies the following:

  • Quality requirements for Ready-to-Use Software Product (RUSP);
  • Requirements for test documentation, including test plan, test description, and test results for RUSP testing;
  • Instructions for conformity assessment of RUSP.

Also includes recommendations for security or business critical RUSP.

ISO/IEC 25051:2014 is solely about providing the user with confidence that it will operate as presented and delivered by RUSP. It is not concerned with production realization (including activities and intermediate products, e.g. specifications). A supplier’s quality system is outside the scope of ISO/IEC 25051:2014.
