SIScon is the short form for “Safety Instrumented System (SIS) Conference”. SIS, as one state-of-art technology functional safety application in process sectors, is widely adopted globally. IEC 61511 is a technical standard that sets out requirements for the specification, design, installation, operation and maintenance of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), so that it can help achieve or maintain a safe state of the process.
SIScon is the first and only international platform dedicated on the collaboration of SIS and IEC 61511, through the sharing of technologies, methodologies, know-hows, standards and regulations. It intends to help and integrate all stakeholders of SIS and IEC 61511 globally. The stakeholders include plant/process operators, EPC, SIS integrators, safety element suppliers, Engineering Services Providers, SIS practitioners, Standard Development bodies, Regulators, Education and Research Institutes.
