To the President of the International Organization for Standardisation,


We, the undersigned, hereby petition the International Organization for Standardisation to suspend publication of ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-4 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-5, and to withdraw ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-1, ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-2 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-3.


It is our view that significant disagreement and sustained opposition exists amongst professional testers as to the validity of these standards, and that there is no consensus (per definition 1.7 of ISO/IEC Guide 2:2004) as to their content.


The board of the ISST (International Society for Software Testing), and the following signatories:

    There is no more a standard way of testing software than there is a standard way of coding software, a standard Software Developer, a standard Software Tester or a standard Software Project.

    This standard does not work. This is a business to fake testing and get your money

    Testing is thinking activity not a prescriptive activity. This standard does not appear to be representative or the entire software testing industry and is biased towards those that set to benefit from it, namely the qualifications providers who need a standard to justify their qualifications.
