EU Commission Updates Harmonized EMC Standards for Certain Equipment

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has taken steps to update the versions of certain harmonized standards used to evaluate the electromagnetic compatibility of certain devices and equipment.

In an Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/455 issued in mid-March, the Commission moved to replace the 2010 edition of EN 55024, Electromagnetic compatibility – Product family standard for audio, video, audio-visual and entertainment lighting control apparatus for professional use – Part 2: Immunity, with EN 55035: 2017, Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment – Immunity requirements.

The Implementing Decision also replaces the 2007 edition of EN 60947-5-2, Low-voltage switchgear and control gear – Part 5.2: Control circuit devices and switching elements – Proximity switches, with the edition of the standard issued in 2020.

The date of withdrawal for both EN 55024:2010 and EN 60947-5-2:2007 is mid-September 2022.

    There are some mistakes in your articles. EN 55024 is “Information technology equipment — Immunity characteristics — Limits and methods of measurement”, while “Electromagnetic compatibility – Product family standard for audio, video, audio-visual and entertainment lighting control apparatus for professional use – Part 2: Immunity” is EN 55103-2, which is also replaced by EN 55035. The publication has also postponed the date of cessation of EN 55103-2 on 2022-07-28. The date of cessation of EN 55024 is 2022-09-16
