The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopts the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61069-7:2019 Industrial-process measurement, control and automation – Evaluation of system properties for the purpose of system assessment – Part 7: Assessment of system safety, as Philippine National Standard (PNS).

PNS IEC 61069-7:2019 was published by IEC in 2016 and was published by DTI-BPS on June 2019. IEC 61069 deals with the method which should be used to assess the system properties of a basic control system (BCS). PNS IEC 61069-7:2019 specifies the detailed method of the assessment of system safety of a BCS. Since a system can have a number of interactions with its environment, some of which can impose a hazardous condition, this standard concentrates on the conditions of the system which can cause harm.

This standard will promote common understanding among stakeholders of industrial automation.

The DTI-BPS has also adopted and approved the other parts of IEC 61069:

1. PNS IEC 61069-5:2019 Industrial-process measurement, control and automation – Evaluation of system properties for the purpose of system assessment – Part 5: Assessment of system dependability
2. PNS IEC 61069-6:2019 Industrial-process measurement, control and automation – Evaluation of system properties for the purpose of system assessment – Part 6: Assessment of system operability
3. PNS IEC 61069-8:2019 Industrial-process measurement, control and automation – Evaluation of system properties for the purpose of system assessment – Part 8: Assessment of other system properties

The DTI-BPS is the National Standards Body of the Philippines. It is the country’s member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
