This article shows how a software development environment can be qualified according to the CENELEC railway application standards and to what extent the standards are adequate for such a task. The requirements for a software development platform are identified. But a software development environment also includes procedures, so the software quality assurance plan is also considered. Adherence to procedures and adequate qualification of involved personnel should also be demonstrated, but this is not specific for a software development environment, so it can be done separately. The method can be adapted to other application areas where similar standards are applicable.
