Automotive Functional Safety

Ensure your automated driving and automated vehicle systems meet functional safety requirements.

With publication of the second edition of ISO 26262 in 2018, the expectation amongst safety managers in the industry was that it would become harder to achieve compliance. This is especially true as the industry moves into the areas of autonomous and connected driving, e-mobility and cybersecurity. ISO 26262’s stringent requirements exert, for many, pressure to change the automotive electronics development process.  

SGS is the global market leader in functional safety training, evaluation and certification services. We are an accredited body for functional safety, and with expert teams and state of the art facilities located worldwide, we offer a full range of services relating to ISO 26262, locally and globally.  

What is ISO 26262?

ISO 26262 differs from other automotive standards in that it relates purely to functional safety. Its aim is to avoid malfunctions in electronic systems that could be dangerous to drivers, passengers and other road users.  

As the industry moves further towards autonomous and connected driving, e-mobility and cybersecurity, further updates can be expected. Partnering with SGS gives you the ongoing expertise you need to achieve ISO 26262 compliance now and in the future.
