A number of high profile incidents at European ports have raised the importance of cyber security for those responsible for security and business continuity in ports. To help senior port personnel address this issue the IET have worked in close association with the Department of Transport to produce this new code of practice.
This code of practice on Electromagnetic Resilience covers the planning and risk management of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and describes a recommended process for EM compatibility for functional safety. It specifically covers measures and techniques that can address the interfering effects of EM disturbances that a system could experience over its lifecycle.
When competently applied the code will help with the provision of evidence required for functional safety for EMC and so contribute towards compliance with IEC 61508 and other functional safety standards. It is intended to be used by functional safety professionals; including managers of projects that require functional safety engineering, practitioners and assessors of functional safety design engineering.
A draft document is now available for public comment. Please read and respond to the consultation by Friday 20th May 2016.
This Code of Practice provides a good practice structured approach to implementing energy management aligned to the key requirements of ISO50001. Topics include legislation requirements, energy management policy, understanding energy use in your operation, strategies and planning for monitoring and identifying improvements, reviewing and solutions. Relevant to energy, facilities, building and environment managers, project managers and engineers and associated building operation and support engineers and technicians.
The purpose of this Code of Practice is to provide a reference to practitioners on the safe, effective and competent application of electrical energy storage systems. It will also provide an understanding of the common terms and operating modes of electrical energy storage systems and detailed information on the specification, design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of an energy storage system.
