Decoding the exida Certificate

Recording Date: March 2016

A manufacturer whose product passes the exida IEC 61508 Assessment Scheme will receive a certificate based on IEC 61508 and perhaps other functional safety standards. There is a significant amount of information on a certificate that may not always be trivial for a novice. It is important that a user understands that a certificate does not stand by itself, and that it is supported by a detailed assessment report. This webinar will explain:

· What happens in an exida certification assessment

· How a company gets a certificate and where to find them

· How one should use and interpret an exida certificate

· How the certification relates to functional safety compliance
