An example of such a fault is a design fault. No part of these publications may be reproduced in any form without the prior permission in writing of BIS.

Computer-based systems genencally referred to as programmable electronic systems PESs are being used in all application sectors to perform non-safety functions and, increasingly, to perform safety functions.

Figure 4 – Failure model 3. Definitions and abbreviations [ETD Attention is particularly drawn to the following: This unified approach has been adopted in order that a rational and consistent technical policy be developed for all electrically baseo safety-related systems.

H c Single PES with dual program- mable electronic devices linked in a serial manner for example intelligent sensor and programmable controller H PEi d Single PES with dual program- mable electronic devices but with shared sensors and final elements i.

In most situations, safety is achieved by a number of protective systems which rely on many technologies for example mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic, programmable electronic. NOTE 3 – The term safe diagnostic coverage, or diagnostic coverage including sate failures, is used to descnbe respectively the fractional decrease in the probability of safe hardware failure, or of both safe and dangerous hardware failures, resulting from the operation of the automatic diagnostic tests 3.

Users of Indian Standards jec ascertain that they are in possession of the latest amendments or edition by referring to the latest issue of ‘BIS Catalogue’ and ‘Standards: Disclosure to Promote the Right To Information Whereas the Parliament of India has set out to provide a practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every oec authority, and whereas the attached publication of the Bureau of Indian Standards is of particular interest to the public, particularly disadvantaged communities and those engaged in the pursuit of education and knowledge, the attached public safety standard is made available to promote the timely dissemination of this information in an accurate manner to the public.


Any safety strategy must therefore consider not only all the elements withm an individual system for example sensors, controlling devices and actuators but also all the safety-related systems making up the total combination of safety-related systems.

EXAIWPLE Verification iecc include – reviews on outputs documents from all phases of the safety lifecycle to ensure compliance with the objectives and requirements of the phase, taking into account the specific inputs to that phase; design reviews: In this adopted standard, reference appears to certain International Standards for which Indian Standards also exist.

615008-4 In any particular application, the required safety measures will be dependent on many factors specific to the application This International Standard, by being generic, will enable such measures to be formulated m future application sector international standards. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.

Certain conventions are, however, not identical to those used in Indian Standards. Overview of techniques and measures ISO For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is 615008-4 with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test, shall be rounded off in accordance 6158-4 IS 2: Examples of methods for the determination of safety integrity levels lEC For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, ifc of these publications do not apply However, parties to agreements based on this part of lEC are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents ic below.


For undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Dependability and quality of service lEC The text of lEC Standard has been approved as suitable for publication as an Indian Standard without deviations.

Fundamental terms ISO Although there may be other systems having safety functions, it is the safety-related systems that have been designated to achieve, in their own right, the required tolerable risk Safety- related systems can broadly be divided into safety-related control systems and safety-related protection systems, and have two modes of operation see 3.

That is, the required safety integrity level may be achieved by implementing the safety functions in the EUC control system and possibly by additional separate and independent systems as well or the safety functions may be implemented by separate and independent systems dedicated to safety NOTE 4 – A safety-related system may a be designed to prevent the hazardous event i.

The corresponding Indian Standards, which are to be substituted in their respective places, are listed below along with their degree of equivalence for the editions indicated: Figure 2 d illustrates a PES ie dual programmable electronics i e two-channel but with 615084 single sensor and a single actuator 3. Figure 2 — Programniable electronic system PES: If computer system technology is to be effectively and safely exploited, it is essential that those responsible for making decisions have sufficient guidance on the safety aspects on which to make those decisions.
