DNV GL launches service plan for functional safety certification

DNV GL MeineDNV GL has set-up a new service specification for functional safety certification, which can be used in all electronic or programmable systems with safety functions

The process involved includes verification of the design, configuration and architecture of the HIPPS logic solver, and associated interface equipment, according to DNV GL. This is to ensure it meets the requirements in the IEC 61511 standard.

The service specification is a simple tool that allows DNV GL to verify systems, subsystems and components against a wide range of standards including IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and Norwegian Oil and Gas’ Guideline 070, the firm said.

“Customers often have to demonstrate compliance to functional safety standards in order to meet legal, contractual or company internal requirements,” stated Meine van der Meulen, principal specialist with DNV GL – Oil & Gas.

“DNV GL has developed a proactive and collaborative approach to helping our clients manage functional safety allowing our customers to clearly demonstrate to all interested parties and to the market that their product has fulfilled the specified standards for functional safety.”
