As technology and the drive towards automated driving and autonomous cars increases, so too does the need for robust safety standards and regulations. These standards are constantly undergoing review and adaptation to keep up with emerging technologies, and this can be challenging for manufacturers and supply chain partners.
The absence of unreasonable risk due to these potentially hazardous behaviors related to such limitations is defined as the safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF). Functional Safety (addressed by the ISO 26262 series) and SOTIF are distinct and complementary aspects of safety.
The new SOTIF standard ISO 21448 is a valuable orientation aid for a responsible process-related and technical implementation of the new challenges, especially with regard to the introduction of autonomous driving in several stages.
SGS is a highly respected provider of functional safety training and consultancy services to the automotive industry. We are actively involved in the development of new and existing standards, and we are keen to share this expertise with suppliers and manufacturers worldwide.
