Welcome to the 61508 Association

We are a cross-industry group of organisations with a common interest in functional safety, particularly in applying IEC 61508 and related standards correctly in order to demonstrate compliance and improve safety for all.

Our members include end-users (from many industry sectors), EPC companies, systems integrators, product manufacturers, consultants and certifiers. We also have active relationships with related industry organisations and safety regulators who often attend our meetings.

We develop and publish many useful and informative guides and assessment tools which are available to all (not just our members) and are free of charge (see Downloads).

Our members recognise IEC 61508 and related standards as the benchmark for achieving functional safety and managing risks in a proportionate way.

For a list of members of The 61508 Association, please see Members.

If you are involved with functional safety we welcome your interest and would like to hear from you. See: contact us
