The International Electrotechnial Commission has released a new edition of CISPR 16-1-5.

CISPR 16-1-5 ed. 2.0 applies to “Specification for radio disturbance and immunity measuring apparatus and methods – Part 1-5: Radio disturbance and immunity measuring apparatus – Antenna calibration sites and reference test sites for 5 MHz to 18 GHz”. The new edition is available for purchase on the IEC’s website.


“CISPR 16-1-5:2014 specifies the requirements for calibration sites in the frequency range 5 MHz to 18 GHz used to perform antenna calibrations according to CISPR 16-1-6. It also specifies the requirements for reference test sites that are used for the validation of compliance test sites in the frequency range 30 MHz to 1 000 MHz according to CISPR 16-1-4. It has the status of a basic EMC standard in accordance with IEC Guide 107. Measurement instrumentation specifications are given in CISPR 16-1-1 and CISPR 16-1-4. Further information and background on uncertainties in general is given in CISPR 16-4, which can also be helpful in establishing uncertainty estimates for the calibration processes of antennas and site validation measurements. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2003, and its Amendment 1 (2012).”
