  The CERN accelerator complex relies on thousands of superconducting and normal conducting magnets to guide the particle beams on their trajectories throughout the accelerator chain. In order to protect magnet and powering equipment from damage, complex magnet interlock systems are deployed and operated in the LHC and its injectors. Despite a very good track record during the first 10 years of operation, important consolidation activities are ongoing and planned to further increase the dependability of the injector chain and enhance the sys-tem functionality where required. This paper reviews the performance of the various magnet interlock systems at CERN during the past years of operation and presents the ongoing renovation projects carried out in the LHC in-jector complex to achieve the high level of dependability and maintainability required for long term operation. Finally, some design aspects of the existing LHC magnet interlocks will be discussed and possibilities to further enhance the dependability and functionality of the mag-net powering system will be presented in view of the High Luminosity LHC.
