Understanding the New IEC 62682 Alarm Management Standard

    Understanding the New IEC 62682 Alarm Management Standard

    This white paper explains why there are now both an ISA-18.2 and an IEC 62682 Standard on “Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries.” The genesis of the IEC document is explained and the differences between the two documents are detailed.

    This paper is a supplement to another PAS white paper, “Understanding and Applying the ISA-18.2 Alarm Management Standard.” Reading and understanding that paper is essential prior to tackling this one. Important material regarding the Life Cycle, the regulatory implications, and practical advice are not duplicated in this paper.

    Note: The Alarm Management Handbook, 2nd Edition, has even more details on ISA-18.2 than are in our ISA-18.2 white paper, and reading that book also provides the necessary background for using this IEC paper.
