The ISO 26262 standard was published to address the increasing complexity of safety-relevant electrical and electronic (E/E) systems. However, its requirements are challenging to interpret and implement. Automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers need to address this challenge quickly or risk losing their competitive advantage.
TÜV SÜD has a global network of automotive functional safety experts who are ready to support your business with in-depth knowledge of ISO 26262 and extensive industry experience. We can provide a comprehensive range of functional safety assessment, testing, certification and training services throughout the automotive value chain.
