The 61508 Association - cross industry group

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 come from many sectors with diverse backgrounds and now span more than just British Industry with members from Europe and Australia. We are a technical Association that believes in networking, mutual support and the sharing of functional safety knowledge to promote and improve safety, especially functional safety.

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). However, many believe our biggest benefit is the content, discussions and mutual support that is available in our general meetings and from our community.

Our members recognise IEC 61508 and related standards as the benchmark for achieving functional safety and managing risks in a proportionate way. Fundamentally, our members believe in developing and improving functional safety for both its users and its practitioners.

For a list of current members for The 61508 Association (T6A), please see Members.

Are you an experienced functional safety professional looking for a community to help keep abreast of industrial functional safety good practice? Or are you new to functional safety and looking for a community to help widen your functional safety awareness? If you are involved with functional safety we welcome your interest and would like to hear from you (contact us). New Association members are always welcome (join us).
