The New ISO 26262 2nd Edition – Changes and Highlights

by Gregory Gruska published on April 18, 2019

On December 20, 2018 the second edition of ISO 26262 was published by ISO. What has changed in this new second edition of ISO 26262 and how will it impact you? In this webinar we discuss the impact the changes will have on existing and new implementations of the standard.

At a high level, the standard has added a Part 12 on Motorcycles, a Part 11 on Guidance on Semiconductor Development and has integrated specific requirements for Trucks, Buses, and Trailers / Semi-Trailers throughout. Additionally, there are several key changes organizations needs to recognize such as a scope change in ISO 26262 where it now include “all road vehicles.” The standard also references cybersecurity in Part 2: Management of functional safety and includes an Annex E (informative) Guidance on potential interaction of functional safety with cybersecurity. As in the first edition the standard does not address the nominal performance of E/E-Systems and, specifically, the safety of autonomous vehicles that are not caused by malfunctions. However, this will be addressed by ISO/PAS 21448 or SOTIF (Safety of the Intended Functionality). SOTIF and ISO 26262 will impact all parts of the Automotive Supply Chain.
