Functional safety (Disbanded)


CLC/BTWG 99-2 Scope


To advise the CENELEC Technical Board (BT) on the functional safety issues related to Electrical, Electronic and Programmable Electronic (E/E/PE) safety related systems. This would include, in particular:

- the preparation of a report on functional safety and its relation to the harmonized standards under the LVD in the context of its total safety approach. Target date: in due time for 102 BT consideration;

-issues arising from the implementation of IEC 61508 series "Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety Related Systems" both as stand-alone standards and in relation to sectoral implementations of this series;

-issues arising from standards developments within CENELEC relating to functional safety;

issues arising from the applicability of the LVD and other EC directives to functional safety and any consequential implications to CENELEC harmonized standards.
