The system of ce marking is governed by the ce marking directive
Directives especially for larger categories of electric and electronic equipment and within the scope of ce-test are:
All of these directives are of the so-called new approach type which means that their requirements are not expressed in terms of limits and tests to be performed, but in terms of:
Essential requirements are no specific directions. They describe the desired result of the directives application in global terms.
In the case of the EMC-directive this is done by stating that all equipment should be able to perform satisfactorily in their EM-environment. This means that requirements must be met for both emission and susceptibility as equipment creates EM interference, and must reside in EM interference (or wanted field) from other equipment.
The details of limits and test methods are left over to the market, by means of European Standards to be applied. Most European standards are based on publications from the IEC (International Electronic Committee), adapted and/or modified by the CENELEC, and translated by the member states to be used in the respective countries. Standardization Institutes in the member state take care of their translation and distribution.
Committees in the member states contribute and finally vote for (or against) the resulting standards.
ce-test is an active voting member of the Dutch National Voting committee for EMC, therefore we can provide our customers with the newest information about upcoming EMC standards.
