Evaluation International are pleased to announce the establishment of a national EMPHASIS ASSESSMENT register which is being made available to Evaluation International Member companies.  This register brings together all planned, in-progress and complete Emphasis Assessments, undertaken on behalf of the Sponsor Companies. 

In addition to this Evaluation International has established a Working Group to oversee the development of the Register and supporting services. Any organisations wishing to access the register or participate in the working group should email: enquiries@evaluation-international.com and a member of our team will be happy to assist.



Evaluation International has bilateral agreements with both EXERA and WIB. These agreements enable EI member companies to access the reports produced by these associations and to collaborate in working groups and projects. 

In addition, EI participates in a wider consortium of end-user organisations across Europe with member companies that operate on a global scale. The aim of this consortium is to ensure that the widest possible community of large-scale EC & I end-user organisations are provided with a platform on which to share knowledge, network, collaborate and share.

The consortium includes the following organisations:


EXERA – the French end-users association for industrial automation. [https://www.exera.com]
WIB – a process automation users association covering the Netherlands and Belgium. [https://www.wib.nl]
CLUI – the Italian Association for Automation and Instrumentation Systems. [http://www.cluias.it]
NAMUR – the German end-user association of automation technology and digitalisation in process industries. [https://www.namur.net]

Evaluation of Software Integrity Level - Omni 16C Products


Evaluation International published a draft report on software reliability of 5 alarm annunciators from different manufacturers, among them Omniflex. The aim of this EI report was to assess how closely each manufacturer met the requirements of EN61508, Part 3. The aim was not to certify the units to IEC 61508 but to evaluate how closely they align with IEC 61508. It was therefore based on information and other evidence supplied by manufacturers. Since BNG, who initiated this investigation, is an important customer for Omniflex, Omniflex has committed internal resource to assist BNG in determining and meeting the conformity of the Omni16c product range to their requirements and to applicable international standards. This Technical Report provides additional information required to clarify sections of the original EI report where information was found to be either missing or incomplete. Focus has been kept on test coverage issues and issues concerning software used in Omni16C alarm annunciator as well as the Omniflex software development process. Information provided in this technical report will allow the EIAA Report to be revised to improve the clarity of the relevant sections.
