Safety certified to the highest maturity level for the first time

embeX FSM is the first to be certified to IEC 61508 with highest maturity level

This award for the Functional Safety Management System (FSM) with Maturity Level 5 was granted by TÜV Rheinland because embeX was the first company worldwide to provide proof of this within the scope of a continuous auditing and certification process lasting more than 10 years. embeX has introduced, implemented and complied with all organisational measures and requirements according to the basic safety standard IEC 61508 for a multitude of safety-related product developments.

“Functional safety is our most important competence", emphasises embeX managing director Jürgen Wiegand. “For embeX, the certification with the highest maturity level means a special recognition of the continuous work, reliability and commitment of our employees. We are very proud of this. Our established and mature safety competence is complemented by the extremely dynamically developing cybersecurity. This enables us to offer our customers integrated Safe & Secure product developments."

“TÜV Rheinland has been working with the embeX organization for over 10 years. By awarding the "Maturity Level 5" we recognise the achievements embeX have made in this time to continually develop and implement a robust FSM system in accordance with our certification rules”, says Thomas Steffens, Business Unit Manager and responsible for the Certification Body for FSM certification of TÜV Rheinland worldwide.
