Addressing your challenges

Do you require an independent Functional Safety Assessment to ensure your Safety Instrumented System (SIS) achieves the required functional safety?

 

To ensure that your Safety Instrumented System (SIS) continues to achieve the required level of functional safety throughout its lifetime, it is vitally important to carry out periodic assessments to check that it is continuing to perform in line with regulatory requirements.

This can be done using either your in-house functional safety resources, or else by using an independent specialist to do it for you. Below are answers to some of the commonly asked questions surrounding Functional Safety Assessments (FSA), including what they are, why you need to do them and why it can be beneficial to use an independent assessor.
