EMC Directive 2014/30/EU Testing Compliant with European Legislation

EMC Directive 2014/30/EU Testing Compliant with European Legislation

Electromagnetic Compatibility EMC testing and compliance is a part of the legislation for equipment supplied or sold in the EU. 

EMC Directive 2014/30/EU applies to the electromagnetic emissions and susceptibility of any equipment to be supplied or sold in the European Union. It sets limits to ensure that, when used as intended, equipment does not disturb radio, telecommunications and other potentially susceptible equipment. The Directive also governs the immunity of such equipment to interference and seeks to ensure that, in turn, it is not disturbed by radio emissions.
