The article analyzes the current regulatory framework for proof of safety, quality assurance, and confirmation of the conformity of microprocessor-based railway automation and remote control systems in the EAEU. CENELEC standards are briefly discussed. A brief overview is provided as regards measures to ensure the required level of safety of microprocessor-based railway automation and remote control systems from the point of view of quality management of development, safety management, and confirmation of the proper functioning of microprocessor systems. The practice of confirming the railway transport automated process control systems comply with standards in the form of a declaration of conformity per TR CU 003/2011 has been analyzed. It is concluded that there is a need to develop a regulatory framework to ensure regulated analysis and assessment of railway automation and remote control systems following the requirements of functional safety, as well as further development of standardization documents to regulate methods for assessing functional safety.

Key words:
Functional safety, confirmation of conformity, proof of safety, methods to prove safety, life cycle model
