Excel Marco Industrial Systems Pte. Ltd. – a company that was founded on Singaporean shores – has been awarded the Functional Safety Management System Certification by TÜV Rheinland this past week.

Achieving this certification on SIS integration related to IEC61511-1:2016 Phase 4, confirms that the certified company has fully demonstrated (during an audit process) that a Functional Safety Management System has been implemented and applied accordingly.

Note: The IEC 61511 is the basic standard for this FSM certification; however relevant clauses of IEC61508:2010 are used complementarily.

The Scope of Certification covers integration of Safety Instrumented Systems (limited to Logic Solver) for the Process Industry up to, and including Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3).

The following phase activities are considered: SIS design, configuration, application programming, assembly, and test – as well as safety parameters calculation.

On 22nd May, the certificate was presented by Mr Lim Teck Mong, Director for Industrial Services, TÜV Rheinland ASEAN to Mr. David Ong, Managing Director, Excel Marco Industrial Systems Pte. Ltd. at Excel Marco’s Singapore office.

The certification provides the latter with a competitive edge in the market, and potential/returning clients can be well assured of their commitment to risk reduction and quality work.

Excel Marco is a premier solutions provider for process automation and safety systems for onshore/offshore oil and gas, marine, and logistics industries. They first collaborated with the TÜV Rheinland Germany and Singapore teams for initial auditing processes two years ago, and while the journey to certification hasn’t been an easy one, the resilience has paid off.

“A big thank you is in order to TÜV Rheinland for their professionalism. Although they didn’t make the journey easy -- no compromising when it comes to Safety of course -- they ensured that we crossed the finish line”, said Mr Ong.

The careful evaluation of all safety-related project processes as part of the Functional Safety Management System helped Excel Marco make improvements to system quality and operational efficiency. Ultimately these improvements translate into savings — both in money and time.
