You would need to get your LIDAR system certified for a SIL or PL standard, This could be done thru a Notified Body in Europe i.e. TUV Rhineland or a National Recognized Testing Laboratory in the U.S. i.e.. U.L.. That would indicate that the system was certified in a specific SIL or PL level system. It does not certify that the system it is used in is certified only that your device meets the requirements for use in such a system.
Ian, You are inquiring into a new technology for safety-related applications. The only currently applicable standard is IEC 61496-1. As far as functional safety performance goes, the product specifications I have seen indicate SIL 2 / Category 2, PL d is achieved. Response time is less than 100 ms.
