Why Now?

NEW STANDARDS issued recently - Individuals previously certified by TÜV (Rheinland) or CFSE should be up to date with the new standards.

NO FORGIVENESS Owners must abide with new standards - There is no grace period overlooking IEC Safety Standards IEC 61511 Edition 2, as the grandfather clause has not been included.

Why are the standards important for plant managers and owners?

Instrument & Controls (I&C) accounts for approx. 65% of total plant risk reduction and can easily be a threat when improperly designed for Risk Reduction. I&C safeguards (alarms, indicators, trips, Safety Instrument Systems) are unregulated and much more complex to design, change or maintain than a mechanical safeguard i.e. PSV’s.

If you have an SIS system in your facility, it's the law in many countries and it's the only standard globally to help anyone design an Instrumented Safety System.

Countries and Owners have, in general, agreed to IEC standards as the Global standard for implementing I&C in a Safety Instrumented System (SIS).

 

Why are IEC standards important for individuals, maintenance, engineers and operations leaders?

Enables you to support plants using I&C and SIS systems to reduce your risk.

Provides a foundational layer of understanding of how can I&C systems reduce risk in facilities.

Makes you a valuable member of any design, maintenance and operations team with current standards and practices.
