We are pleased to announce that Azure DevOps has successfully passed the ISO 26262 ASIL D certification, the highest level of Functional Safety management process, by TÜV SUD, an international independent third-party testing and certification company. This certification demonstrates Microsoft’s commitment to providing our Automotive customers with the highest level of quality and safety in their software development projects. Azure DevOps is now the only software development platform with this certification.

What is ISO 26262?

ISO 26262 is an international standard for the functional safety of road vehicles. It specifies requirements for the development, operation, and maintenance of automotive electrical and electronic systems in road vehicles, including the underlying software. The standard helps ensure that automotive software is safe and reliable and meets the needs of users and regulators.

With many automotive software development efforts moving from on-prem to the cloud, this certification will help Azure DevOps customers meet their automotive projects’ safety and reliability requirements.

You can download the Azure DevOps ISO 26262 ASIL D certificate directly from the Microsoft Service Trust Portal.
