WG2 have just had a successful meeting in Sydney, Australia, between 31st October and 4th November 2016.
1. WG2 have had the following standard published;
a) IEC 61078 - Analysis techniques for dependability - Reliability block diagram and Boolean methods
2. WG2 are currently working on the following documents;
a) IEC 60300-3-5 – Application guide - Test Conditions and Statistical Test Principles.
b) IEC 60812 - Analysis techniques for system reliability – Procedure for failure mode and effects analysis
(FMEA). There will be a CDV shortly.
c) IEC 61163-2 - Reliability stress screening - Part 2: Electronic components. A CD2 will be produced shortly.
d) IEC 60300-3-1 - Dependability management - Part 3-1: Application guide - Analysis techniques for dependability

3. WG2 are about to start work updating;
a) IEC 61025 Ed. 2.0 - Fault tree analysis (FTA)
b) IEC 61123 Reliability testing - Compliance test plans for success ratio
c) IEC 61124 Reliability testing - Compliance tests for constant failure rate and constant failure intensity.
4. WG2 are considering updating the following documents. If anyone has any comments on these please contact the convener.
