EU Commission Publishes Updated Standards List for EMC Directive

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has also published a list of standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the essential requirements of its directive on electromagnetic compatibility, also known as the EMC Directive.

The EMC Directive applies to “any apparatus or fixed installation,” and regulates the “ability of equipment to function satisfactorily…without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbances to other equipment.” The current version of the Directive, 2014/30/EU, replaced the original version, 2004/108/EC, earlier this year, bringing the Directive into closer alignment with the EU’s New Legislative Framework without significant changes to the Directive’s essential requirements.

The updated list of CEN, CENELEC and ETSI standards that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the EMC Directive was published in August 2016 in the Official Journal of the European Union, and replaces all previously published standards lists for the Directive.
