MISRA C was first published in 1998. Now in its third edition, MISRA C "Guidelines for the use of the C language in critical systems" was established to provide a "restricted subset of a standardized structured language" as required in the 1994 MISRA Guidelines, for automotive systems being developed to meet the requirements of Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 and above.

Subsequently, it has been adopted and used across a wide variety of industries and applications including the rail, aerospace, military and medical sectors.
