BS EN 62061:2005+A2:2015 Safety of machinery - Functional safety of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems

As industry becomes increasingly automated, electrical control systems are playing a larger role in machine safety. Meanwhile those systems are using more complex electronics.

To ensure you are up to speed, BS EN 62061 sets out requirements for safety-related machinery control systems, and describes how to achieve the necessary performance. It has now been updated to correct minor errors and update normative references.

The standard was developed as a derivative of IEC 61508, which introduced the concept of functional safety and applies across all industry sectors. BS EN 62061 takes the provisions, rationale and SIL (safety integrity level) classification system of IEC 61508, and interprets them for machinery control systems.

BS EN 62061 can:

  • Give you assurance that your safety related control system has the required integrity required for the level of risk
  • Let you claim a presumption of conformity with the relevant health and safety requirements of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
  • Within the UK, help you comply with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations

This standard will be useful to anyone involved with the safety of machinery, particularly machinery designers, control system manufacturers and integrators, machinery users and maintainers; notified bodies; consultants and regulators. It will be crucial where Safety Integrity Level (SIL) classification is required.
