Functional Safety in Railway – EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129, EN 50567

The railway standards EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50567, EN 50129, EN 50159 have been developed to adress the requirement of railway functional safety. International as well as national regulations (like CSM, common safety methods in the european union or the SIRF framework for the german homologation of rolling stock) base their requirements on the above standards.

The standards above allow manufactures, operators and authority to deploy safe systems. The standards are based on a systematic approach from the overall risk analysis to the single sub-system implementation. The railway functional safety has a long history and share its approach with the IEC 61508 standard.
