Assurance Case Guidance (Aug 21)

The Assurance Case Working Group (ACWG) is pleased to announce the release of Version 1 of its guidance. 

The Assurance Case Guidance addresses ‘Challenges, Common Issues and Good Practice’ and comprises:

  • a framework that introduces the scope and context of assurance cases (Part 1);
  • topic papers , which each address a specific guidance topic that is perceived by the ACWG as containing weaknesses or poor practice, and where no or limited guidance currently exists (Part 2);
  • supporting information including terminology, references and acknowledgements (Part 3). 

The guidance is available for free download at scsc.uk/scsc-159. Should you find anything that you would like to add or improve for the next version, please add comments at scsc.uk/f301
