This webinar provides an introduction to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certification and gives an overview of the main differences between the standards IEC 61508 and EN ISO 13849 regarding application field, main procedures, requirements for system design and development as well as the measurement of safety per performance. In this context, the webinar introduces some related aspects of NFPA 79 and touches on the TÜV SÜD certification process.
The webinar is intended for developers of SIL-compliant devices, manufactures of SIL-compliant devices who strive for a certification of their products, industrial plant operators and constructors who have to comply with related safety regulations, cross-border suppliers of machinery or electrical/electronic programmable devices, operators who assemble or renew their machinery on their own as well as companies and individuals who are active in an industry with high safety requirements (e.g. energy, medicine, transportation).
