Access European Union Markets with CE Marking
CE Marking is your ticket to EU market access. We have helped manufacturers understand and meet the requirements of relevant New Approach Directives for CE Marking. Put our advisory, testing, and certification services In Collaboration with Notifying body to work for you and allow us to guide you through every step of the CE Marking process:
- Determine which directive(s) are applicable to your product
- Fulfill the essential requirements
- Establish a monitoring system
- Establish an accident reporting system
- Declaration of Conformity
- Save the documentation for 10 years after a product has been placed on the market
- Register with the appropriate governing body within Europe
We have the product expertise to provide consultency to meet varrity of
- ATEX Directive (94/9/EC)
- Construction Products Regulation (CPR)
- EMC Directive (2004/108/EC)
- ErP Directive (2009/125/EC)
- Gas Appliance Directive (90/396/EEC)
- In-Vitro Diagnostic Directive (98/79/EC)
- Low Voltage Directive(2006/95/EC)
- Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC)
- Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC)
- Pressure Equipment Directive (PED and TPED)
- RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU)
- R&TTE Directive (1999/5/EC)
Certifying SIL component safety
Functional Safety Challenge
As functional safety demands continue to increase, safety instrument system designers for electrical/electronic and programmable electronics (E/E/PE) must integrate safety certified products (sensors, logic units and actuators) into their systems and require manufacturers to provide certificates/assessments in regard to IEC 61508* / 61511**.
Designers now require their suppliers to follow a certification process for safety instrumented functions and their components.
Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Certification is a comprehensive quality guarantee from manufacturers.
SIL Certification Solution
Kalson Engineering assesses and certifies according to the IEC 61508 standard (SIL Certification), valve, actuactors and accessories
We cover the following topics in order to guarantee an exhaustive and coherent assessment of components (generic or specific to particular “safety loops”):
Project documentation assessment
Development and product design assessment
Business process assessment
Relevance of feedback (lessons learned) assessment
Analysis and studies of Operational Safety assessment
- Assessment of Failure Modes, Effects and Diagnostics Analysis (FMEDA) analysis
- Assessment of Probability of dangerous Failure on Demand (PFD) and Probability of dangerous Failure per Hour (PFH) calculations
Assessment of verification and validation activities
Key steps to SIL Certification are:
The assessment always begins with an audit/diagnostic regarding the IEC 61508.
Kalson Engineering then proceeds to assess documentation and completes findings reports for each document linked to the safety of the component or function.
Complementary audits are carried out after each document assessment.
The SIL certificate is issued after all these steps have been completed.
