    IEC 61000-4-39 has been included in the Ed. 4.1 of the IEC 60601-1-2 (EMC standard for medical devices) but the test is restricted to only three fixed frequencies, without using the horn antenna but only magnetic field coils.

    Is there talk in any of the family standards committees of adding 61000-4-31 or 61000-4-39 to product/family requirements?
