    My company is looking to have our safety PLC code reviewed by an independent third party. The machine is a ~$1million piece of capital equipment, my company is based in New Hampshire, and we're using B&R.

    Can anyone point me to an independent reviewer?

    Maybe do a search of Professional Engineers in your area, looking for software review specialists?

    I suppose it's possible. Most of us are PEs anyway, we're really looking for a company that can offer a certification. The challenge is that it's capital equipment... we're not building a factory where we can just post warning signs; we're manufacturing big machines that we're handing off to folks with high school educations.

    EDIT: That might be a better idea than I thought. I'm going to follow through on your link, Berkeman. Thanks.
