International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 61069-7:1999
Title Industrial-process measurement and control - Evaluation of system properties for the purpose of system assessment - Part 7: Assessment of system safety
Project Number 12978
Abstract/Scope The treatment of safety in this standard is confined to hazards that can be present within the industrial-process measurement and control system itself. Considerations of hazards that can be introduced by the process or equipment under control of the industrial-process measurement and control system to be assessed are excluded. If the system mission includes activities which could affect the safety of the process or equipment under control, the requirements of these activities are the subject of IEC 61508.
