About the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC 2014/108/EC)
What is the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive about?
The objective of the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive is to regulate the compatibility of equipment regarding EMC. The EMC Directive first limits electromagnetic emissions of equipment to ensure that, when used as intended, such equipment does not disturb radio and telecommunication as well as other equipment. The Directive also governs the immunity of such equipment to interference and seeks to ensure that this equipment is not disturbed by radio emissions when used as intended
Compliance with this Directive is need for European market access and products falling within the scope of this Directive must bear the CE marking. Work with BSI as your partner of choice for market access solutions to achieve this.
Who is the EMC Directive for and what does it cover?
The Directive is for manufacturers of apparatus liable to cause electromagnetic disturbance, or the performance of which is liable to be affected by such disturbance who want to sell products in Europe.
Are you ready for UKCA marking?
UKCA marking is effective in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) from 1 January 2021, so if you place your product on the market in Great Britain you will need to affix the UKCA marking (although CE marking will also be recognized for most products until the end of 2021). The Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) will remain self-declaration under UKCA.
In this new regulatory landscape BSI can deliver services such as issuing reports to clients which might provide evidence of compliance with UK law.
