Product Assessment & Certification ISO 26262 and ISO 21448 (SOTIF)

Demonstrating compliance with the prevailing safety standards is mandatory for your product to be sucessful on the market. 

The required independence level for higher ASIL levels is hard to achieve without external support. CertX is providing assessment and / or confirmation reviews with the highest indepence level I3.

The result is an assessment report specifying our methodology and the overall result without disclosing any of your IP, a compliance report with all details of our findings and our recommendations for your internal use.

In case your product is being used across several applications or clients it is usually more efficient to certify it as a Safety Element out of Context (SEooC). In addition to the assessment results you will get a certificate demonstrating the right ASIL level and ongoing adherence towards your all clients and applications.

CertX use the safety case methodology to assess and certify products according to the ASIL (Automotive Safety Integrity Level). Each product is unique therefore dedicated requirements for every product will be identified at different levels:

  • Functional Safety Management
  • Concept Phase
  • System Level
  • Hardware Level
  • Software Level
