EU Commission releases updated standards list for EMC Directive

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has published an updated list of standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the essential requirements of the EU’s directive on electromagnetic compatibility (also known as the EMC Directive, 2004/108/EC).

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 provisions of the EMC Directive do not apply to telecommunications terminal equipment, which are covered under the essential requirements of Directive 1999/5/EC (also known as the R&TTE Directive).

The updated list of CEN, CENELEC and ETSI standards that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the EMC Directive was published in October 2012 in the Official Journal of the European Union, and replaces all previously published standards list for the Directive.
