This part of IEC 61511 provides guidance on the specification, design, installation, operation and maintenance of SIFs and related SIS as defined in IEC 61511-1:2016.
NOTE 1 Annex A (informative) has been organized so that each clause and subclause number therein addresses the corresponding clause and subclause number in IEC 61511-1:2016 except for being preceded by "A".
NOTE 2 Annex A now contains material previously in the body of the first edition. These changes are required for compliance with IEC rules which prohibit a standard being wholly informative.

- review the section guidance as well as the specific clause guidance. (e.g., wh en looking for guidance on 18.104.22.168.3, consider guidance in 5.2.6);
- when specific clause guidance is not provided (e.g.; no furth er guidance provided), consider reviewing the section guidance as well, as it can be applicable).
NOTE 4 Examples given in the Annexes of this Standard are intended only as case specific examples of implementing IEC 61511 requirements in a specific instance, and the user should satisfy themselves that the chosen methods and techniques are appropriate to their situation.
