In 1999 the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in collaboration with the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and British Computer Society (BCS) published the "Competence Criteria for Safety-Related System Practitioners". This work was revised in 2007 and published only as a PDF download. The principal purpose of the document is to help safety practitioners assess and maintain the competence of their engineering staff. The IET are currently developing a business case with a view to revising these guidelines and it will be seeking wide consultation and clarity on approach, format, etc.

Initially, the IET want to determine the general opinion of safety practitioners on this topic. Does anyone on this list have a view on the following broad questions?

o Is it suitable in its current form?

o Does it need to be revised?
