CE testing, EMC testing, EMC approval, emissions testing, immunity testing

Compliance with the European EMC Directive requires both emissions and immunity testing. The Official Journal lists various product family and generic standards which electronic devices must comply with. Common CE marking EMC standards we can test against include:

  • EN 55022 (emissions, Information Technology device )
  • EN 55024 (emissions, Information Technology device immunity)
  • EN 61326 (Measurement, Control and Laboratory equipment)
  • EN 61000-6-1 (generic immunity- residential, commercial and light industrial equipment)
  • EN 61000-6-2 (generic immunity- industrial equipment)
  • EN 61000-6-3 (generic emissions- residential, commercial and light industrial equipment)
  • EN 61000-6-4 (generic emissions- industrial equipment)
  • EN 55013 (Sound and Television Broadcast Receivers and associated equipment, emissions)
  • EN 55020 (Sound and Television Broadcast Receivers and associated equipment, immunity)
  • EN 55014-1 (Household Appliances, Electric Tools and Similar Apparatus emissions)
  • EN 55014-2 (Household Appliances, Electric Tools and Similar Apparatus immunity)
  • EN 55015 (electrical lighting and similar equipment, emissions)
  • EN 61547 (electrical lighting and similar equipment, immunity)
  • EN 55032 (Multimedia equipment)
  • EN 55025 (Vehicles, Boats and Internal Combustion Engines, Protection Of On-Board Receivers – emissions)
  • EN 55012  (Vehicles, Boats and Internal Combustion Engines – emissions)
  • EN 300 386 (Telecommunication Network Equipment)
  • EN 60945 (Maritime navigation and radiocommunications equipment and systems)
  • EN 50121-3-2 (Railway rolling stock apparatus)
  • EN 50121-3-1 (Train and Complete Vehicle)
  • EN 50121-4 (Signalling and Telecommunications Apparatus)

 

CE testing and CE approval can be complicated and expensive. EMC Technologies can provide expert guidance and support. We are a notified body for the EMC directive.

 

Region: Europe and EFTA Countries

Regulator: European Commission

Description: Electrical and electronic products sold in the European market must be CE marked. The application of the CE mark requires compliance with various European directives depending on the type of product. Commonly applied EU Directives include EMC, electrical safety (LVD), Radio and Telecommunications (R&TTE), Machine Directive and Medical Devices.

Legal Requirements:

  • The product must be tested to relevant harmonised standards. Most products require comprehensive emissions and immunity testing.
  • Relevant test reports shall be held by the supplier as evidence of compliance to the harmonised standards/directives
  • Suppliers must complete and sign a Declaration of Conformity Statement which lists all the applicable directives and harmonised standards which the product complies with
  • The CE mark must be affixed to the product.
  • For certain equipment/standards a notified body must sign-off on the test reports
  • NATA test reports are highly recommended to ensure report acceptance, otherwise products may have to be re-tested locally by an accredited laboratory

 

CE marking Radio Equipment Directive (RED) will replace the R&TTE Directive on June 13, 2017

Radio testing, EMC testing, EMR/EME testing, Safety testing

Compliance with the European R&TTE Directive  and RED  requires radio specific intentional transmitter/receiver testing, EMC testing, EMF (human exposure) testing and safety testing. The Official Journal lists various product family and generic standards which radio (and radio integrated) devices must comply with. Up to June 12, 2017, CE marking R&TTED harmonised standards  we can test against include the following list. From June 13, 2017 only harmonised standards listed under the RED may be used.  Trouble is, ETSI has not yet republished the entire suite of standards so what does one do?    Call us!! EMC Technologies is a member of the RED Compliance Association along with all EU Notified Bodies. We will give you the best advice.

Region: Europe and EFTA Countries

Regulator: European Commission

Description: Radio and wireless products sold in the European market must be CE marked. The product must comply with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) or until June 12, 2017, the Radio and Telecommunications (R&TTE) Directive which is being replaced by the Radio Equipment Directive (RED). Specific transmitter and receiver tests are required e.g. transmit power, spurious emissions, bandwidth) along with various EMC emissions and immunity tests.  Under the RED, all radio receivers must comply with the RED.

CE Directives can be found here.

Legal Requirements:

  • The product must be tested to relevant RED or R&TTE harmonised standards.
  • Relevant test reports shall be held by the supplier as evidence of compliance to the harmonised standards/directives
  • The CE mark must be affixed to the product.
  • On the customer’s request, a notified body (NB) can be used to issue a certificate/expert opinion.  A NB may be the only path possible until the full list of RED harmonised standards is published.
  • NATA test reports are highly recommended and often required by NBs otherwise products may have to be re-tested locally by an accredited laboratory.

 

We have our own base station simulators to test virtually all wireless devices. EMC Technologies can arrange NB certificates on your behalf.

 

CE marking Low Voltage Directive (LVD)

CE testing, safety testing, safety approval

Compliance with the European LVD Directive requires specific safety testing. The Official Journal lists various product family and generic standards which electrical and electronic devices must comply with. Common standards which we can provide CE marking safety testing services against and provide a NATA test report:

  • EN 60950-1
  • EN 60335
