ISO 26262 is your ticket to credibility in the automotive industry. TASKING offers a number of solutions to help you achieve certification in the shortest amount of time and at the lowest possible cost. With ISO 26262 certification, your software will be stamped ready for use in the most complex automotive applications that require the highest standards for safety, reliability and performance.

Why Do You Need ISO 26262?

ISO 26262 is the functional safety standard for the automotive industry, and your ability to gain certification reflects your commitment of quality to the software you develop. ISO 26262 provides:

  • Industry standard recognition that proves your software meets the rigorous quality requirements for complex automotive applications.
  • The safest and most reliable software applications that meet and exceed the safety requirements for advanced automotive systems.
  • The lowest possible risk for failures from automotive manufacturers that utilize your software in their mechanical and electrical systems.


We provide a complete ISO 26262 qualification program that inspects the full journey of your software and its intended application.


  • An assessment about whether a tool malfunction can introduce an error in the software being developed is made, which results in a Tool Impact (TI) level.

Steps to Qualification

  • The confidence that such a malfunction would be detected by the applied development process is assessed and expressed as a Tool Error Detection (TD) level.


  • The tool classification process results in the determination of the required Tool Confidence Level (TCL).

The recommended tool qualification methods depend on the TCL/ASIL (Automotive Safety Integrity Level). They are shown below. (+ = recommended, ++ = highly recommended)
