Welcome to the Data Safety initiative working group (DSIWG) area.
This working group exists to address concerns raised about data in safety-related systems.
The next meeting will be by teleconference in January 2019, details TBA.

An updated flyer for the group is available.
Dave Banham is setting up a DSIWG sub-group activity to progress the development of the Risk Ontology Model and the alignment of the Data Safety Guidance document with it (and vice-versa). Please contact Dave (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in assisting this work.
Minutes of Meetings
Statement of the Problem
It was agreed that data in safety related systems is not currently sufficiently addressed in current safety management practices and standards. It is acknowledged that data has been a contributing factor in several incidents to date. There are clear business and societal benefits, in terms of reduced harm, reduced commercial liabilities and improved business efficiencies, in investigating and addressing outstanding challenges related to safety of data.
To have clear guidance on how data (as distinct from the software and hardware) should be managed in a safety related context, which will reflect emerging best practice.
