Functional Safety Management Requirements for Engineering Cos. and Integrators

Recording Date: July 2020

The IEC61511 standard requires that Engineering Companies and Integrators of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) need to prove that they have a Functional Safety Management System (FSMS) in place that is being followed. As such, companies providing these services who do not currently have an FSMS in place, theoretically, should not be performing Safety Lifecycle tasks associated with SIS design and/or engineering. This requirement was introduced into the 2016 edition of IEC61511 and it is now four years since this new edition was introduced. Companies offering services that pertain to safety, such as SIS design,should be looking at setting up a FSMS. How else will you be able to meet the customer’s requirement if it states IEC61511 compliance is required for the SIS.
