Safety Control Systems - Validation

Safety Control Systems - Validation - EN ISO 13849

Health & Safety Compliance Engineering, having been actively involved in the development of standards for functional safety, offers independent analysis and validation of your safety control system designs for machinery.

Validation process

The purpose of the validation process is to determine the reliability (the Performance Level) and confirm the conformity of the design of the safety related parts of the control system within the overall safety requirements of the machinery and demonstrate that each safety-related part meets the requirements of the European Harmonised Standards EN ISO 13849-1 and EN ISO 13849-2  ”Safety of machinery — Safety-related parts of control systems.

EN ISO 13849 requires that validation should be carried out by persons who are independent of the design of the safety-related systems.

This validation process should be started as early as possible and in parallel with the design, so that problems can be corrected early whilst they are still relatively easy to correct.
