ISO/IEC Rules: Guidelines for Quality Assurance

ISO/IEC Rules are a set of international standards for the development, implementation, and maintenance of information technology (IT) products and services. These rules are created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and are accepted by governments, organizations, and companies worldwide. The standards are designed to ensure that IT products and services meet certain quality and safety requirements, are interoperable between different systems, and are reliable and secure. They cover areas such as software development, data security, hardware compatibility, and network protocols. ISO/IEC Rules also provide guidance on how to develop and implement IT products and services in a way that is cost-effective and efficient.
