Standards for Safety and Reliability
The society has representatives on a number of standards committees ensuring that the views of the society are included in the standards making process. These committees include:
BSI DS/1 Dependability
The British Standards Institute committee DS/1 is responsible for the development and review of British Standards in the fields of dependability, physical asset management and closely associated topics to meet identified needs. DS/1 is responsible for the UK input into IEC/TC 56 and CEN/TC 319.
Recently issued standard: BS EN IEC 60300-3-4:2022 Ed3 Dependability management – Part 3-4: Application guide – Specification of dependability requirements.
Representative Jo Hursell
BSI AMS/1 Asset Management
The British Standards Institute committee AMS/1 is responsible for the UK input into ISO/TC 251 which has published the following ISO 55000 series standards:
- ISO 55000: 2014 AM – Overview, principles and terminology
- ISO 55001: 2014 AM – Management Systems – Requirements
- ISO 55002: 2014 AM – Management Systems – Guidelines for the application of ISO 55001
- ISO/TS 55010:2019 AM – Guidance on the alignment of financial and non-financial functions in asset management
See website https://committee.iso.org/tc251
Following publication of ISO 55000 series, BSI PAS 55 Specification for the Optimized Management of Physical Assets was withdrawn.
Representative Richard Denning
BSI FSH/24 Fire Safety Engineering
The British Standards Institute committee FSH/24 is responsible for the development of standards for fire safety engineering in buildings.
Recently issued standard: PD 7974-7:2019+A1:2021 Application of fire safety engineering principles to the design of buildings. Probabilistic risk assessment.
BSI GEL/65/1 Systems Aspects
The British Standards Institute committee GEL/65/1 is responsible for the UK input into IEC/SC 65A whose scope is to prepare standards regarding the generic aspects of systems used in industrial-process measurement, control and manufacturing automation: operational conditions (including EMC), methodology for the assessment of systems, functional safety, human factors etc. GEL/65/1 also has a safety pilot function to prepare standards dealing with functional safety of electrical/ electronic/ programmable electronic systems.
Representative Simon Burwood
BSI HS/1 Occupational Health and Safety Management
The British Standards Institute committee HS/1 is responsible for the UK input into ISO/PC 283 and standardisation in the field of Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management. ISO/PC 283 has published OH&S management standards: ISO 45001 and ISO/PAS 45005. Current standards activity.
Looking for a SARS representative.
BSI PVE/3/6 Hydrogen Technologies
The British Standards Institute committee PVE/3/6 under the direction of PVE/3 is responsible for the UK input into ISO/TC 197 and CEN-CLC/JTC 6 (including WG 3 “hydrogen safety”) for standards related to systems and devices for the production, storage, transport, measurement and use of hydrogen.
ISO/TC 197 standards include ISO/AWI TR 15916 (Basic considerations for the safety of hydrogen systems), ISO/AWI 22734-1 (Hydrogen generators using water electrolysis – Industrial, commercial, and residential applications – Part 1: General requirements, test protocols and safety requirements), PD ISO/TS 19883:2017 (Safety of pressure swing adsorption systems for hydrogen separation and purification), BS ISO 26142:2010 (Hydrogen detection apparatus. Stationary applications), BS ISO 16110-1:2007 (Hydrogen generators using fuel processing technologies – Part 1: Safety).
