What is DO-178 B/C and ED 12 B/C?
DO-178 B and DO-178 C (referred to as ED-12 B/C in Europe – referenced on this page as DO-178 B/C for simplicity) provides guidance, used by aerospace software engineers, to ensure airworthiness. The DO-178 standard is not explicitly mandated in the FAA's airworthiness requirements, but it is a critical component of the FAA's approval process for issuing its Technical Standard Order (TSO), so DO-178 is considered essential.
