Railway applications - Communication, signalling and processing systems - Application Guide for EN 50129 -- Part 1: Cross-acceptance

This application guide for cross-acceptance is a Technical Report about the basic standard. It is
applicable to the same systems and addresses the same audience as the standard itself. It provides
additional information on the application of EN 50129 to cross-acceptance. Therefore it deals with the acceptance by a safety authority of a previously accepted system or product in a different environment and/or context, often referred to as cross-acceptance. It is mainly dedicated to safety assessors, safety authorities, validators, and safety managers. In drafting this guide, it is assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic structure of the standard.

Introduction

EN 50129 was developed in CENELEC and is now regularly called up in specifications. In essence, it lists

factors that influence RAMS (see EN 50126) and adopts a broad risk-management approach to safety.

EN 50129 is the basic standard for safety related electronic systems for signalling.

Use of EN 50129 has enhanced the general understanding of the issues, but has also shown that items

like cross-acceptance need further explanation and clarification. Therefore CENELEC decided to address

those items in this application guide for cross-acceptance.
1 Scope

This application guide for cross-acceptance is a Technical Report about the basic standard. It is

applicable to the same systems and addresses the same audience as the standard itself. It provides

additional information on the application of EN 50129 to cross-acceptance. Therefore it deals with the

acceptance by a safety authority of a previously accepted system or product in a different environment

and/or context, often referred to as cross-acceptance. It is mainly dedicated to safety assessors, safety

authorities, validators, and safety managers.

In drafting this guide, it is assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic structure of the standard.

3 Terms, definitions and abbreviated terms
3.1 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129

and the following apply. Other definitions not included in these documents have been added to eliminate

any doubts regarding their interpretation.
3.1.1
generic application

system with specific functions that are related to “a category of applications” associated with a general

environmental and operational context, which is developed on the basis of criteria of standardization and

parameterization of its elements, so as to render it serviceable for various tangible applications. By

combining generic products or combining these with other generic applications, it is possible to obtain a

new generic application
3.1.2
generic product

component/product capable of performing certain functions, with a specific performance level, in the

environmental and operational conditions stated in the reference specifications. It can be combined with

other products and generic applications to form other generic applications
3.1.3
specific application
a specific application is used for only one particular installation
3.1.4
risk analysis

identification of hazards associated with a product, process or system, scrutiny of their causes and

systematic determination of their consequences in an operational context. Risk analysis results in the

identification of the nature of likely sources of harm arising from a product, process or system and their

impact in terms of nature of likely accidents and the severity of harm caused
3.1.5
safety analysis

subset of risk analysis solely focused on hazards which have a potential for causing accidents which may

cause harm to people
3.2 Abbreviated terms

For the purposes of this document, the abbreviated terms used in EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129

and the following apply. Other abbreviations not included in these standards have been added to

eliminate any doubts regarding their interpretation.

4 Cross-acceptance
4.1 General

Clause 4 describes the requirements and conditions necessary to achieve the acceptance of a product or

application for use in a different environment from that for which it was originally developed and

approved. One field of application of this Technical Report could be interoperability (for example TSI for

Control Command Subsystem) and in general fields where cross-acceptance is needed.

4.2 Definition and importance of cross-acceptance
Cross-acceptance is defined in EN 50129.

Cross-acceptance is an aspect of the technical and legal process principally aimed at establishing the

fastest route to the deployment of Product, System or Process in a target (new) context or environment.

The Product, System or Process considered for cross-acceptance is generally assumed to satisfy the

qualifications for reliability, tolerable safety and environmental performance in their native (original)

context or environment.

The target application is also assumed to possess significant synergies with the native environment, thus

making the deployment technically feasible viable/advantageous without significant alterations. However,

the essence of cross-acceptance currently relates to the assurance of safety and potentially

environmental performance of product, system or process which are subject to a regulatory regime.

4.3 Lifecycle for cross-acceptance
4.3.1 General

The cross-acceptance life cycle can be seen as a branch of the life cycle model defined in EN 50126,

starting after the original approval of the generic product or generic application. Cross-acceptance life

cycle mainly comprises
– phases, planning and documents (including role of field testing),
– safety assurance processes,
– approval processes.
