IEC/DIN EN 61508, ISO 26262, ISO 13849 - these standards have one thing in common: they protect consumers from hazards. The technical term for this is "functional safety", "FuSa" or "Safety" for short. But how do you prove this "harmlessness"? In the form of certifications. And there are several of these EU directives and legal requirements.
For example, the mentioned ISO 26262, which is used in the automotive sector. It is clear that in order for a product to be allowed to be sold/marketed in the first place, the manufacturer must first prove that there is no health risk to the consumer at any time. This proof is provided by applying the relevant standards, which, for example, prescribe a certain procedure during the development process.
