EMC Directive

EMC 2014/30/EU

Directive brief

The electromagnetic force is the one responsible for practically all the phenomena one encounters in daily life above the nuclear scale, with the exception of gravity. That is why, the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2014/30/EU regulates the electromagnetic compatibility of equipment and ensures the free movement of apparatus and creates an acceptable electromagnetic environment in the domestic market requesting a harmonised and acceptable level of protection.

Applicability 

The electromagnetic force is one of the four known fundamental force. Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2014/30/EU regulates the electromagnetic compatibility of equipment and ensures the free movement of apparatus and creates an acceptable electromagnetic environment in the domestic market requesting a harmonized and acceptable level of protection. 

The electromagnetic disturbance generated must not exceed the level above which radio and telecommunications equipment or other equipment cannot operate as intended.

The equipment must have a level of immunity to the electromagnetic disturbance to be expected in its intended use which allows it to operate without unacceptable degradation of its intended use.

A fixed installation must be installed applying good engineering practices and respecting the information on the intended use of its components, with a view to meeting the protection requirements. Those good engineering practices must be documented and the documentation must be held by the person(s) responsible at the disposal of the relevant national authorities for inspection purposes for as long as the fixed installation is in operation.

The technical documentation must enable the conformity assessment of the apparatus with the essential requirements.
