A few years after the first publication of IEC 61508, sector standard IEC 61511 was issued; specifically designed for functional safety of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) in the process industry sector.
The functional safety principles are broadly identical in both standards, but IEC 61511 distils the four normative parts of IEC 61508 into a single normative standard of around 80 pages, aimed specifically at the application of SIS in chemical, oil & gas, non-nuclear power generation, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper and food & beverage plants.
Most recent IEC 61511-1 Ed. 2.0 b:2016 Functional safety - Safety instrumented systems for the process industry sector - Part 1: Framework, definitions, system, hardware and application programming requirementsIEC 61511-1:2016 gives requirements for the specification, design, installation, operation and maintenance of a safety instrumented system (SIS), so that it can be confidently entrusted to achieve or maintain a safe state of the process. IEC 61511-1 has been developed as a process sector implementation of IEC.

The essential roles of the various personnel assigned responsibility for the SIS should be defined and procedures developed, as necessary, to support the consistent execution of their responsibilities.Field data are collected through operational and mechanical integrity program activities to assess actual SIS performance.
