ISO 26262

The ISO 26262 - Road Vehicles Functional Safety, first published in 2011 and revised in 2018 is the current state-of-the-art standard to ensure functional safety of road vehicles. ISO 26262 applies to OEMs delivering on-road mobility products and automotive solution providers (Tier - 1, Tier - 2, Tier - 3 suppliers) producing electronic or electrical systems. The ISO 26262 series of standards provide requirements towards E/E systems developed for passenger cars, trucks, busses, and motorcycles to ensure that 'Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL)' are met at every stage of system lifecycle.


Compliance to ISO 26262 demonstrates due diligence and provides confidence that your product is free from unreasonable risk during its operation in the field. The standard provides a set of guidelines to identify potential hazards and implement suitable safety measures before series production to ensure greater confidence in your product. ISO 26262 also helps you reinforce your brand image by taking appropriate steps against expensive safety-related product recalls and fatal accidents on the road. ISO 26262 is widely recognized in the global automotive market and supports compliance towards international safety regulations.
