Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical and electronic equipment to operate properly and as expected in their intended electromagnetic environment, without causing electromagnetic disturbances that interfere with other nearby equipment.

In Europe, all electronic devices, whether powered by the electricity grid or batteries, must comply with Directive 2014/30/EU Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) – unless they have some form of intentional radio frequency communication, in which case their electromagnetic compatibility comes under the scope of Directive 2014/53/EU Radio Equipment Directive (RED). These Directives (EMC and RED) aim to ensure that electrical and electronic equipment have adequate levels of immunity while not causing disturbances that are too high.

IEP’s laboratories have more than three decades’ experience of assessing EMC phenomena in electrical and electronic equipment, supporting manufacturers at all stages of the product development cycle, from design to their compliance certification with applicable standards and directives.
