An Expert's View of EMC

George Vassila of Electro-magnetic Test Services writes…

Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of an electrical or electronics system to function as intended within an electro-magnetic environment. To put it simply, in an environment where products are EMC compatible, a TV receiver, a PC, an electric drill and a mobile phone can operate simultaneously without interfering with each other.

In 1996, during the process of establishing a single market, the EU introduced a number of directives, which regulated product compliance, hence enabling products to be traded across borders without national restrictions. One of these directives is the EMC Directive 89/336/EEC which has recently been superceded by the latest amended 2004/1 08/EC. All products placed on the EU market must meet the essential requirements of this directive and be affixed with the CE mark. This is a legal requirement. Failure to do so can result in the withdrawal of products from the entire EU market, with fines and, in some cases, imprisonment.
