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:
