Functional Safety – Automotive

Safety audits, functional safety assessments and more – demonstrating compliance to ISO 26262 is increasingly difficult.

As an accredited body for functional safety, SGS has been working with the automotive industry for many years, and offers a full range of services relating to ISO 26262.

As publication of the standard’s second edition comes closer, the expectation amongst safety managers in the industry is that it will become harder to achieve certification. This is because its stringent requirements exert, for many, a pressure to change the development process of automotive electronics.

Added Value Automotive Safety Services

SGS also provides court-proof certificates with regards to product safety across multiple application domains, for electric mobility for example. Also, as an accredited body for IT security, we can deliver all the relevant safety and security training and certification according to SAE J3061 (Automotive Cybersecurity).

Furthermore, SGS is involved with the co-design of standards, from the international – such as ISO 26262 – to the national (the German standardization committee, TC22/SC3/WG16).
