As you may already be aware, part of a Process Safety Management (PSM) plan follows IEC 61511 (or the equivalent) in order to meet some of the PSM elements. According to the 2018 version of the Canadian Electrical Code, Canadian process industry players are now required to comply with IEC 61511. For Alberta this took effect February 1, and January 1 for Saskatchewan. Now that this is a requirement for all new installations, it is important to understand the essential elements for projects with and without Safety Instrumented Functions. .
