High Integrity C++ (HIC++ or formerly HICPP) is a software coding standard for the C++ programming language developed by Programming Research Limited, now part of Perforce Software.[1] HIC++ was first published in October 2003.[2] The latest revision, version 4.0, was released in October 2013 and documents 155 rules that restrict the use of ISO C++ language to improve software maintenance and reliability in high reliability or safety critical applications.[3]

The Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) C++ coding standard references High Integrity C++.[4]
