About the Working Group

Development of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 began in May 2007 by Working Group 26 (WG26) of the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7 Software and Systems Engineering committee. ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 parts 1, 2 and 3 became official International Standards in September 2013.

Participation in WG26 is open to anyone in the world via their national standards body (e.g. British Standards Institution, Standards Australia, ANSI, etc) or via an industry standards body such as the IEEE Standards Association. Software testing specialists from industry and academia that are interested in joining the working group, reviewing drafts of the standard or simply being kept informed on the development progress of the standard are invited to email the convenor of our working group, Dr Stuart Reid, at stureid.test@gmail.com for more information. You can also visit our How to Get Involved page for more information.
