February 2017 - Safety framework selection.
January 2017 - Systematic faults and failure models.
March 2017 - WG20 has the utmost difficulties to bridge security and safety. Between diverging interests of stakeholders and topic complexity, the result might be somewhat decieving.
January 2017 - Official launching of edition 3 of IEC 61508. National comments are being gathered.
December 2016 - There will be no french version of IEC 61511 edition 2. Not enough french experts for the job.
November 2016 - Publication of IEC61703. At end, good mathematical formulas and clear definitions. Still nothing for PFDavg outside annex I of ISO12489. TC 56 (dependability) has still problems with TC65 definitions. Or maybe it's the opposite.
August 2016 - two new sessions :
* SAF 108 : a three day session for engineers (MSc) to understand the complete concept including relationships with accidentology.
* SAF 109: a one day session for the persons involved in safety objectives definition and preliminary risk analysis.
