IEC 61511: What’s New in Edition Two

Recording Date: September 2015

With the new IEC 61511 second edition due to be issued in the next few months, it is worth a detailed look through the draft version to see what has changed since the first edition, released back in 2004. Although most of the standard remains the same, there are a number of differences in both definitions and requirements that demand specific attention. This presentation will walk through the new edition to confirm what is staying the same and what the key changes are so we can keep up to date with the best practice in functional safety engineering in the process industries.
