Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) – Directives & Standards

Quote: “The aim of electromagnetic compatibility considerations is to avoid or minimize the influence of electromagnetic phenomena on a device, equipment or system and on living or inert matter. To achieve this, methods of measurement and test, as well as limits and levels of electromagnetic emission and of electromagnetic immunity are defined in a large number of EMC publications.

EMC publications and standards, developed by the IEC and other standardization bodies, can be divided into four general categories:

  • Generic EMC Standards,
  • Basic EMC Publications,
  • Product family EMC Standards and
  • Product EMC Standards.

These terms are defined in the corresponding chapters.”

Pretty good read.
