 Issue 5.5 TickIT Guide, published November 2007



Clause by clause guidance of BS EN ISO 9001 for IT systems and software developers

Unique linking to ISO/IEC 12207 processes & ISO/IEC 15288

[BS EN ISO 9001 was revised in 2008 and reviewed by the committee responsible for producing the TickIT Guide. It was decided that the TickIT Guide did not require any further revision or updating since no new requirements were introduced by BS EN ISO/IEC 9001:2008. Issue 5.5 remains the current version of the guide.]

  • updated and enhanced guidelines for the application of BS EN ISO 9001 to software development
