The new standard IEC/ISO 17305

The <strong>standard IEC ISO 17305</strong> is planned to be a merger of the standards EN ISO 13849 and IEC 62061. In future, the new IEC ISO 17305 will describe the <strong>functional safety of plant and machinery</strong> as well as the <strong>measures and steps</strong> to be considered en route.
<h4>IEC/ISO 17305 will probably come into force from 2016</h4>
The launch date for IEC ISO 17305 is planned for 2016, with a transition period of 2 years. This so-called merger will <strong>apply worldwide</strong>. The aim is to make things <strong>standardised and simpler</strong>. This could be achieved by completely replacing EN ISO 13849 and IEC 62061, which currently run in parallel, and having only IEC ISO 17305 in future.
<h4>Initial internal committee draft of IEC/ISO 17305 this year</h4>
The initial internal committee draft of IEC ISO 17305 is planned by the end of 2014. <strong>Pilz is represented with a group of experts in the relevant standards committee and in some working groups,</strong> playing a key role in steering development for the purposes of plant and machine builders. Where the merger to form IEC ISO 17305 is concerned, we support the most practical approach possible.
<h4>Latest first-hand developments on the draft standard</h4>
No final decisions have yet been made with regard to the content of IEC ISO 17305. As soon as the draft standard has been officially published we will provide <strong>statements, appraisals and practical tips</strong> for the application of IEC ISO 17305 on this website.
