11.8  Making sure the standards are used

Sadly, unless given the appropriate encouragement, people tend either not to follow standards or to drift: first on small points, then on more important points.

Reviews and inspections are widely regarded as an excellent defect detection and prevention method. These need only have an extra checklist for conformance to coding standards. Where you have different people reviewing different aspects of the code, then one of these is given a focus on coding standards.
