CSA Z434 does not mandate the use of optional features (such as the Yaskawa Functional Safety Unit) that enable the controllers to perform additional safety features. However, there can be advantages to utilizing such features, and they can only be used if the additional controls are purchased. So, to answer your question, "no," it is not required, but there can be advantages to using such features if you elect to utilize them.
