IEEE Computer Society Functional Safety Standards Committee

IEEE Computer Society Functional Safety Standards Committee


The Functional Safety Standards Committee (FSSC) is responsible for functional safety-related standards in the IEEE where functional safety means the part of the overall safety of a system or piece of equipment that depends on a system or equipment operating correctly in response to its inputs. The FSSC is focused on architectures, methodologies, tools addressing functional safety and other safety-related aspects of the intended functionality at the different levels of abstraction (system of systems, systems, hardware or software component) and across application fields such as automotive, industrial, avionics, high-performance computing. It also covers relationships of functional safety with contiguous domains such as system safety, cybersecurity, reliability, real-time interactions, and artificial intelligence.
