Functional Safety in the Automotive Industry

The ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard is an international safety standard of electrical and electronic systems in production automobiles defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). 

As defined by TÜV NORD, producers of safety-relevant technical systems in the automotive industry are obligated to develop their systems according to all technical and scientific aspects of functional safety.

ISO 26262 defines the requirements of functional safety for electrical and electronic systems. The application of this standard leads to correlating documented safety evidence of conformity.
