US national standard has been a recommended practice for a long time now, but the new IEC 62682 specifically calls out management letting them know this is an international standard not a recommend practice. We can help, our customers are achieving the EEMUA 191 alarm rates after implementing the ISA 18 lifecycle. Alarm management must be treated just like any other project, with management support, resources, ownership, and a philosophy that is used, updated, and managed per the 62682 standard. We offer training, facilitation, and philosophy document development. If you want more information regarding 62682, Ian Nimmo has recorded a 1 hour webinar with very good information.
