EC-Type examination and certification - Testing of functional safety as part of the EC-Type examination
The safe operation of equipment depends today more and more on the safety of hardware, software and the management system. Therefore the functional safety is always an important pillar for the overall safety and thus a necessarily important part of our conformity assessment process. Thus, also in the course of our work in testing and certification according to the EC Directive 2006/42/EC (Machinery Directive), PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and 2014/34/EU (ATEX Directive). Testing the functional safety of the following items is part of our designation as a notified body of the EU with the identification number CE 0158 respectively as authorized body (ZÜS):
Examination of functional safety for obtaining a certificate
Independently of any necessary product certification, we test and certify the functional safety according to the above standards as part of our DAkkS accreditation. Fast, efficient and in constant dialogue with our customers and in addition also in the fields of
Of course, DEKRA EXAM also carries out partial certifications of individual safety functions such as for embedded systems of hard- or software.
Determination of safety-relevant parameters (SFF, B10D, MTTFD, λD, …)
Of course, DEKRA EXAM also carries out partial certifications of individual safety functions such as for embedded systems of hard- or software safety-relevant parameters. Here, the service ranges from the practical component testing and determine safety parameters for hydraulic, pneumatic and (electro-) mechanical components (B10D, MTTFD, and λD) to validation of the fundamental and proven safety principles set out in Annex A-D of EN ISO 13849-2 as far as validation and verification of fault exclusion. Furthermore, we offer statistical failure analysis such as Weibull and Chi2.
DEKRA EXAM experts guide you through the entire safety lifecycle:
