The Motor Vehicle Inspection Station (MVIS) program oversees the inspection of vehicles at approved facilities and the issuing of safety standards certificates, structural inspection certificates and annual and semi-annual inspection certificates and stickers. The program ensures that vehicles meet a minimum safety standard before they receive.

Reliability and Safety Engineering presents an overview of the basic concepts, together with simple and practical illustrations. The authors present reliability terminology in various engineering fields, viz., electronics engineering, software engineering, mechanical engineering, structural engineering and power systems engineering.

Risk-Based Structural Evaluation Methods: Best Practices and Development of Standards provides a comprehensive summary of the findings from a survey of attitudes of researchers, structural engineers, and government agencies to risk-informed structural engineering practices and a follow-up workshop.

Risk analysis principles are well established. The International Association for Structural Safety and Reliability Structural safety book promotes the study, research, and applications of scientific principles of safety, risk and reliability in the analysis, design, construction, maintenance and operations of structures and other engineering systems.

Structural reliability emerged in the late s, for evaluating the failure probability of structural integrity of offshore structures, buildings, bridges and other civil constructions [18, Baker: Structural Reliability Theory and Its Applications from (Springer-Verlag).
