Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Conformity assessment of electrical and electronic apparatus and fixed installations
Electromagnetic compatibility is the ability of the equipment (apparatus or fixed installation) to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without creating unacceptable interfering electromagnetic effects on another device within the environment.
The equipment should be designed and manufactured taking into account the development of the modern technologies in this area so that:
(A) the electromagnetic disturbance generated should not exceed the level above which radio, telecommunication or other equipment cannot be used for their intended purpose;
(B) have a level of resistance to the electromagnetic disturbance which is expected when used as intended, as such resistance shall enable the equipment to operate without unacceptable deterioration of its intended use.
Conformity assessment is a process that demonstrates whether the essential requirements of the Directive are met for certain equipment.
Conformity assessment procedures:
Module A: Internal Production Control
Module B: EU type examination
Module C: Conformity with type based on internal production control
