August 23, 2018 Laura Dolan

Barr Group has released BARR-C:2018, an update to the Embedded C Coding Standard. The latest version of the company’s stylistic coding rules helps embedded system designers reduce defects in firmware written in C and C++.

BARR-C:2018 is now available in a free PDF download and online at Print copies can be purchased on In addition, an editable (Microsoft Word) copy of BARR-C:2018 can be licensed by teams wanting to customize rules to their project-specific needs.

Followers of earlier versions of the BARR-C coding standard will find that little has changed about the rules themselves. Clarifications and additional code examples have been added to make the rules easier to understand and apply.

“Now that the guidelines from MISRA can be more easily coupled with the stylistic rules from BARR-C, we look forward to seeing embedded software designers take even greater steps toward improving the safety, security and overall code-quality of their products,” said Andrew Banks, Chairman of the MISRA C Working Group.
