Evolution of the UK Defence Safety Standards
The MoD has a range of safety standards, some of which have been in use since the early 1990s. There have been suggestions for change to the standards based on industrial experience of using the standards and in response to the MoD’s Standards Breakthrough process. This paper summarises the reviews of the standards and outlines current proposals for reworking DS 00–56, the main system safety standard.
