Embedded Assurance and Certifications

The Arm Embedded Assurance program is managed by an independent corporate-level function providing a holistic and impartial view of assurance and ensuring the integrity of the Arm Management System for the Executive Committee. The bi-annual third-party Embedded Assurance Program is delivered in partnership with our ISO 9001 certification body and reviews Arm’s global operations for adherence to:

  • The Arm Management System
  • International best practices, including quality, security, health and safety, environmental, and business continuity

Arm Management System

How we work at Arm is key to ensuring quality throughout our products and services. The company operates through the Arm Management System, which describes how our strategies and objectives are translated into aligned action, through our values, policies, people and structures. It describes what we do, how we do it, and how we push ourselves to continually improve, as one Arm, together.

Not only is it well defined but it’s independently verified to provide valuable insight into how we can ensure continual improvement.”

Arm Supports Functional Safety

To ensure the best outcomes for our technology and customers, Arm plays an active role in the development of international safety guidelines; for example, ISO 26262 and ISO/PAS 21448.

Arm products are designed “out of context” to satisfy the widest range of applications. We believe that everyone in the integrated circuit (IC) supply chain has an important role to play in safety certification, and applications must be certified in accordance with market-specific standards. Arm is capable of supporting customers and manufacturers in their certification processes of Arm-based devices.
