New asymptotic approximations of reliability integrals are developed in both the spaces of original and transformed (independently, normally distributed) variables. In the transformed variables, the approximation yields a very simple formula for approximating the value of SORM integrals. Examples are presented illustrating the accuracy of the approximations and results are compared with some existing approximations of reliability integrals.
