Electromagnetic Compatibility

The following approvals in each country ensure that the electronic products emit a limited amount of electromagnetic interference radiation only. Some of these approvals also place requirements on the interference immunity (electromagnetic robustness) of electronic products. The international standards CISPR 32 (interference radiation) and CISPR 24 (interference immunity) serve worldwide as the basis for national standards that apply with regard to the requirements for individual country approvals.

The requirements described here frequently refer to statutory minimum mandatory requirements that must be fulfilled. In addition to this, our products also comply with more stringent requirements, to e.g. meet the requirements called for in an industrial environment.

Conformity mark based on manufacturer's declarations

The conformity mark referred to in this paragraph enables a manufacturer to confirm the compliance of the marked product with the applicable directives and laws that apply in each of the countries and regions. One means of ensuring that the relevant requirements are complied with is for regional authorities to monitor the market.

EMV- Directive and RED - Directive

The European standards EN 5502 (interference radiation) and EN 55024 (interference immunity) are used as a basis for compliance with the EMC Directive. CE is mandatory in Europe.

CFR 47 Part 15; Subpart B (Unintentional Radiators)

FCC (Federal Communication Commission) is an independent authority in the USA that is responsible for defining the requirements in the FCC Directive CFR 47 FCC Part 15. This Directive describes the requirements and limit values for the interference radiation generated by electronic products. FCC is mandatory in the USA.

ICES-003 „ITE – Limits and methods of measurement”

IECS-003 IECS-003 is a Canadian Directive issued by the Canadian authority Industry Canada. This Directive defines the requirements pertaining to interference radiation emitted by electronic products, comparable to the requirements governed by the FCC. The Directive references the Canadian standard CAN/CSA CISPR 22. ICES-003 is mandatory in Canada.

Radiocommunication Act 1992 (Section 182)

The RCM mark is a conformity mark that enables a manufacturer to confirm that the statutory requirements with regard to electromagnetic requirements in Australia and New Zealand have been met.Compliance with the requirements is based on the Standard AS/NZS CISPR 22 (interference radiation) RCM is mandatory in Australia and New Zealand.


The test results for certifications are verified by an independent third-party office.

VCCI Technical Requirements V-3

VCCI (Voluntary Control Council for Interference of IT Equipment) is a council based in Japan that defines the requirements pertaining to the interference radiation emitted by IT products. These requirements are mainly based on the international Standard CISPR 32 (interference radiation). VCCI is a voluntary test mark for the Japanese market. Market monitoring is also conducted by the VCCI.

CNS 13438

BSMI (Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection) is an authority in Taiwan that also develops national standards and provides certification and test services. The Standard CNS 13438 defines the measurement methods and limit value with regard to the interference radiation emitted by IT equipment. The measurements must be conducted by a laboratory accredited in Taiwan.


KCC (Korea Communication Commission) is an authority in South Korea that is responsible for conducting tasks similar to those of the FCC in the USA. The authority also defines the requirements pertaining to interference radiation and interference immunity for IT equipment in the Electrical Communication Basic Law. The equipment is certified directly by the authorities in Korea according to local standards KN 32 / KN 35.
