Report on how Automotive Functional Safety Starts With the Supplier

Report on how Automotive Functional Safety Starts With the Supplier

Although semiconductors were not initially included in the original ISO 26262 development in 2011, their official inclusion in the standard not only standardizes the approach to functional safety but also increases the liability in the case of a failure.

The imminent introduction of ISO 26262 Part II will go a long way to addressing the increased the need to expand the responsibility for functional safety across the supplier base, but in this rapidly changing environment, will likely require frequent updates to keep pace.
