CTAI S.r.l.


Railway sector

One of the fundamental aspects of railway sector safety is the functional safety of safety systems, from safety systems for tunnels, to signalling systems, to safety systems on trains. This is even more important as a result of European directives on railway interoperability and other regulations in the railway and underground stations sector which provide for the functional safety assessment according to standards EN 50126/50128/50129, derived from IEC/EN 61508.

In detail of these activities, in co-operation with certification bodies, CTAI can provide the following services:

  • Training courses on the application of standards EN 50126/50128/50129
    • Definition of the necessary documentation
    • Requirements specification
    • Development of the safety case
    • Hardware and software design
    • Validation (integrity and functionality validation)
  • Risk analysis
  • SIL classification of safety systems
  • Functional safety assessments of safety systems and devices
  • Software functional safety assessments
  • Performing of necessary tests
  • SIL certification of systems and devices used in safety systems
