IEC/TR 62061-1 guide to application of ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061
IEC has published a Technical Report IEC/TR 62061-1 ed1.0 Guidance on the application of ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061 in the design of safety-related control systems for machinery, which is available as a 38-page paper document or as a PDF file. It was prepared jointly by Technical Committee IEC/TC 44, Safety of machinery – Electrotechnical aspects and Technical Committee ISO/TC 199, Safety of machinery. Note that the Technical Report has also been published in parallel by ISO as ISO/TR 23849.
This Technical Report, which does not have the same status as an International Standard, contains the following sections:
3.Comparison of standards
4.Risk estimation and assignment of required performance
5.Safety requirements specification
6.Assignment of performance targets: PL versus SIL
According to the introduction, it is intended that this Technical Report be incorporated into both IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1 by means of corrigenda that reference the published version of this document. These corrigenda will also remove the information given in Table 1, Recommended application of IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1, which is provided in the common introduction to both standards and is now out of date. Subsequently it is intended that ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061 will be merged by means of a Joint Working Group (JWG) of ISO/TC 199 and IEC/TC 44.
A bilingual (English and French) version of IEC/TR 62061-1 ed1.0 is available from the IEC Webstore (priced CHF90 for the hard copy of CHF99 for the PDF) and ISO/TR 23849:2010 is available as a 14-page document, in either English or French, from the ISO website (priced CHF80 for all versions, hard copy or PDF).
