The 5 Major Steps to Implement the Standard UL-1998
This checklist was updated to include Revision 1 of this major software engineering document: ANSI/UL 1998 - or ANSI 1998 and UL 1998 - Standard for Software in Programmable Components. This standard is used by the fuel cell and medical device business community. The UL 1998 standard is focused toward application-specific, non-networked software in a programmable component embedded in a product for which a failure may result in injury to persons. In addition, ANSI/UL 1998 is a reference software standard intended to be used in conjunction with any product specific safety standards that address safety requirements for the identified programmable component and the product hardware. A general software configuration of a microprocessor based programmable component typically includes the operating system or executive software, communication software, micro-controller, input/output hardware, and any generic software libraries, database management or user interface software. The checklist provides an easy-to-use classification scheme of physical evidence comprised of policies, procedures, plans, records, documents, audits, and reviews. The ANSI/UL 1998 checklist clarifies what is required for compliance through a product evidence list that will assist any software organization in meeting the requirements of this standard. The purchase of the checklist includes four hours of free consultation during 60 days after date of purchase, answering questions about the standard and the checklist. Using this ANSI/UL 1998 checklist saves time and money, and may aid in meeting certain governmental requirements. A quality product at a reasonable price!
