The current EU standard, EN 954-1 will no longer be applicable and will be replaced by EN ISO 13849-1, which defines a Performance Level (PL) for all safety-related parts of a control system. IEC 61508, along with the sub-category standard EN 62061, determines a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for the devices. OSHA standards and European standards will later converge toward the IEC 61508 international standard.
