Functional Safety

SGS’s functional safety experts help develop components, products and safety processes featuring safety-relevant functions that comply with the appropriate international regulations (mainly ISO 26262 and IEC 61508). This minimizes your risk by reducing the likelihood of product liability claims, while simultaneously fostering your reputation for safety and quality.

The SGS TÜV functional safety team, as an accredited body for functional safety, operates globally to ensure that your products and systems are safe and ready for world markets. We provide consultancy on the requirements of the established standards, as well as court-proof certificates regarding product safety.

Our range of functional safety services includes:

  • Training & Personal qualification – providing a broad range of public and company-specific (in-house) courses for functional safety specialists, those responsible for quality, developers, managers and jurists
  • Consultancy – covering the full scope of functional safety, from concept to end-of-life
  • Safety Analytics – identifying faults and solutions to maximize safety, using methodologies such as:
    • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
    • Failure Tree Analysis (FTA)
    • Markov Analysis
    • Reliability Block Diagram (RBD)
    • Testing and Certification – evaluating (and reporting on) concepts, systems, products and processes and issuing assessment/audit reports, certificates and test marks, as required

    As a matter of course, we cover all requirements to the ISO 26262 (e.g. via Safety Assessments and Safety Audits) and can also act as a Safety Manager on your behalf.

    We provide our functional safety services to various industrial sectors, including:

    • Aerospace
    • Agriculture and forestry
    • Automation
    • Machine safety
    • Medical technology
    • Process industry
    • Semiconductors
    • Software

    In all cases, we can apply our expertise and knowledge to the functional safety of your product development processes and/or provide your staff with the necessary instruction.
