Code development and unit testing

I have a 3rd party developer, developing the customer (front end) mobile application and the language of the contract doesn't specify Unit Testing. The only clause mentions delivering the code according to industry standards. I am late into the picture and cannot redact the contract. As it stands, do you know if anyone's definition of Industry Standards includes the creation/execution of Unit Testing?

Thank you,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe it is the standard coding industry baseline for software assurance from below
practicing software engineers; PhD scientists at R&D  laboratories; data from large IT organizations; software assurance work at MITRE Corp.; standards from OMG and its special interest group the Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ); the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); and decades of research published by IEEE, ACM, the journals Empirical Software Engineering and Software: Evolution and Process, and the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. 
See the " CISQ Quality Characteristic Measures" @
At  the Unit Level, most of  the coding practices can be checked with code analyzers already embedded into current  development  environments or  with  native  features  in  the  IDE,  such  as  those  offered  in  Microsoft Visual  Studio  or  Eclipse.  There  are  also  some  useful  tools  available  on  the  market  which  target  individual developers  and  typically  run  on  developers’  workstations.  The  most  popular  are  developed  by  the  Open Source  communities  (PMD,  Checkstyle,  etc.).  These  tools  capture  dead  unused  variables,  overcomplicated expressions,  and  similar  items  useful  for  the  hygiene  of  the  code.

Agreed; I already sent my statement of good faith to the attorney and the front end dev team agrees unit testing is part of core development
