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 Arm Management System establishes the design of how the company is run and sets minimum operating requirements for business units and enterprise functions with comprehensive guidance on what we do and how we do it, as well as how we continually improve.
“The Arm Management System is both Executive Committee mandated and approved and forms the foundation for everything we do to ensure quality throughout our product and service portfolio. Not only is it well defined but it’s independently verified to provide valuable insight into how we can ensure continual improvement.”
The Arm Management System has achieved certification to the internationally recognized ISO 9001 standard. This ensures Arm products and services meet the needs of customers through an effective quality management system.
The ISO certification is the recognition of Arm’s commitment to consistent product quality and customer satisfaction, and our dedication to continuous 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.
