Achieving and assessing conformity with standards and compliance with various sets of requirements generates significant costs for contemporary economies. Great deal of this is spent on fulfilment of safety and security requirements. However, standards application is not supported sufficiently by the tools available on the market. Therefore, standards conformity framework (SCF) containing methods and tools which provide support for application of standards was proposed. The framework is based on trust case methodology being used to provide arguments demonstrating properties of IT systems. The article describes SCF and shows how it fits into the processes of achieving and assessing conformity. It identifies other methods and tools supporting standards application and compares them with the framework.
