An updated edition of the C Standard, commonly referred to as “C11”, was released just as MISRA C:2012 was being prepared for publication, meaning it arrived too late for the MISRA C Working Group to take it into consideration.

As the adoption of C11 has become more widespread, the MISRA C Working Group have decided that it is now time to address this new edition of the C Standard, support for which will be implemented by means of a series of amendments to MISRA C:2012. This document amends MISRA C:2012 as required to introduce support for ISO/IEC 9899:2011. Subsequent amendments will be used to introduce specific guidance for the features introduced by ISO/IEC 9899:2011.

In the three years since its publication, the additional guidance provided by MISRA Compliance has been increasingly adopted. The MISRA C Working Group have decided that now is the time to upgrade this guidance from optional to be an integral part of the MISRA C lifecycle. Therefore, this document amends MISRA C:2012 to do that.
