SIL Certification:  Value or Vanity?  Don't forget to register for the IET System Safety Engineering TN  Webinar on 6th December

We've seen a substantial increase in machine and process automation with increased reliance on safety-critical systems over the past few years. This trend will continue and rapidly grow as industry evolves. This new reality brings new challenges. Safety now depends on the correct function of electronic components or systems, but it can be hard to pin-point the correct information and assurance level required.

This event will help understand the requirements and benefits of safety assurance using IEC61508 and critically review the need for certification.

Speaker - Eur Ing Paulo Oliveira B.Eng (hons), MSc (ENG), CEng, FS Expert (TÜV Rheinland), CMSE ® MIET, MIAM
