A Primer for Functional Safety for IEC 61508


The adherence to the compliance and certification objectives dictated by functional safety and security standards like IEC 61508 pose multiple challenges for Industrial Control System suppliers.

Conformance with domain and country-specific regulatory guidelines requires planning from the early stages of the product/project lifecycle. A lack of understanding of compliance objectives causes
project delays and overruns, impacting resources, time and money; in extreme cases, perhaps resulting in punitive damages.

This webinar would focus on Functional Safety with respect to IEC 61508, the de facto standard and the basis of other functional safety standards for multiple safety-critical domains.
