TÜV Rheinland and Functional Safety
Functional Safety (FS) is the safeguard against hazards resulting from faulty and interrupted functionality. More and more safety-related control systems are being used primarily in the manufacturing and process industries as well as in the railway, automotive and medical industries with the aim of reducing the risk of hazards.
Safety must be ensured under normal and/or undisturbed conditions and maintained in case of abnormal conditions, requiring products to be designed in such a way that fault, failures and external influences do not result in cases of undetected loss of safety.
TÜV Rheinland provides functional safety services based on international standards such as IEC 61508, IEC 61511, ISO 13849, ISO 26262. Serving the full spectrum of industrial sectors, we offer certifications, risk assessments, system auditing and more.
In addition, TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program is the only worldwide extended vocational training program in the area of Functional Safety where knowledge and competencies are approved of by a third neutral party and where certificates are issued.
