Title
Functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems - Part 1: General requirements (see www.iec.ch/61508)
Abstract
Sets out a generic approach for all safety lifecycle activities for systems comprised of electrical and/or electronic and/or programmable electronic components (electrical / electronic / programmable electronic systems (E/E/PESs)) that are used to perform safety functions. This unified approach has been adopted in order that a rational and consistent technical policy be developed for all electrically-based safety-related systems. Is intended to facilitate the development of application sector standards. Has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104. The contents of the corrigendum of April 1999 have been included in this copy.
