What is an independent safety assessment ?

 

The ISA mission brings the expected confidence level to ensure the safety of a transportation system or one of its components. Such service is required from Railway National Safety Agencies (NSAs), or similar, for the system to be officially commissioned into a national network.

This assessment allows the different stakeholders of this project insuring that processes, methods and tools that are used (development of a new product, installation of a new system) are, among others, compliant with CENELEC standards.

 

 


EN 50126

Railway Applications - Specification and demonstration of Reliability, Availability of, the Maintainability and Safety (RAMS)

EN 50129

Railway Applications - Signaling system, telecommunications and processing - Safety related electronic systems for signaling - Safety related communication in transmission systems.

EN 50128

- Signaling systems, telecommunications and processing

- Software for control systems and train protection.

Such assessment can relate to a whole railway line (Subway lines, high-speed lines….), to a specific subsystem on a given line (Rolling Stock, Infrastructure, Energy, Control-Command& Signaling,), or on a simple product (Radio Block Center, Odometry, Set-point transmiters…), or a software (traction/braking software).

Such standards are issued from the IEC 61508, and are slowly becoming a worldwide reference for all guided transportation projects. They impact such projects depending on the Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) and have to be complied with for every phase of the assessed system, for this purpose, we wrote the RF 0015 which establishes the requirements and the procedure for the certification of the safety integrity level of products likely to be used in guided transport systems.
