In general, reliability (systemic def.) is the ability of a person or system to perform and maintain its functions in routine circumstances, as well as hostile or unexpected circumstances.
The IEEE defines it as ". . . the ability of a system or component to perform its required functions under stated conditions for a specified period of time."
Reliability may refer to:
Reliability (statistics), of a set of data and experiments 
High reliability is informally reported in "nines", 
Data reliability, a property of some disk arrays in computer storage. 
Reliability engineering ensures a system will be reliable when operated in a specified manner 
Reliability theory, as a theoretical concept, to explain biological aging and species longevity 
Reliability (computer networking) is a category used to describe protocols. 
High availability or uptime is the reliability of physical telecommunication networks, computers, and many other types of equipment

New standards IEC TC104: Environmental conditions and methods of test
  • IEC 60068-2-75 Ed. 2.0
    IEC 60068-2-75:2014 provides three standardized and coordinated test methods for determining the ability of a specimen to withstand specified severities of impact. It is used, in particular, to demonstrate an acceptable level of robustness when...
  • IEC 60721-2-9 Ed. 1.0
    IEC 60721-2-9:2014 is intended to be used to define the strategy for arriving at an environmental description from measured data when related to a product's life cycle. Its object is to define fundamental properties and...
  • IEC 60068-1 Ed. 7.0
    IEC 60068-1:2013 includes a series of methods for environmental testing along with their appropriate severities, and prescribes various atmospheric conditions for measurements and tests designed to assess the ability of specimens to perform under expected...
