IEC Last Monday, I was attending a talk by Kees Kemps from Honeywell SMS, the Netherlands. We discuss on the application and other issues on FSC system. We then came on discussion of the implementation of very fundamental standard for Safety Instrumented System:

  • IEC61058: Functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems
  • IEC61511: Functional safety – Safety instrumented systems for the process industry sector

Kees then asked very fundamental questions:

  • Do you know its existance?
  • Do you have the copy?
  • Have you read it?
  • Do you understand it?
  • Have you apply it?

Would you answer those questions?
