Is IEC 61508 Also A European Standard?

Yes. The seven parts of IEC 61508 were published by CENELEC in December 2001 as EN 61508.

All CENELEC member countries had to implement EN 61508 at national level by August 2002, either by publishing an identical national standard or by endorsement. Any conflicting national standards of CENELEC member countries had to be withdrawn by August 2004.
