IoT is increasingly finding its way into applications where safety, reliability, security and functional effectiveness are paramount. This includes use in medical, transportation, industrial, defence and even aerospace applications.
The design, development and manufacture of electronics devices and software for use in these environments needs to comply with the requirements of international regulatory standards which go beyond the electromagnetic compatibility and radio communications standards which apply to all electronic devices. Such standards apply not only to the characteristics of the finished design, but to the processes used to develop it, including risk management.
