Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing and Certification

Electromagnetic compatibility testing and certification services | TÜV Rheinland

Safety and compliance are twin pillars of EMC certification

Electromagnetic compatibility test mark | TÜV Rheinland

Manufacturers of electric and electronic devices in a wide range of industries, from automotive and railway to household and leisure goods to medical and laboratory equipment want to ensure that their products function safely and effectively. Electromagnetic interference and susceptibility that is merely annoying in one context can be life-threatening in another. To prevent this, electric and electronic devices have to adhere to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) guidelines and must bear the CE marking. Anybody wanting to bring such products onto the European market has to comply with the EMC directive 2014/30/EU.

Our EMC testing regime takes these standards into account, issuing certification for compliance with international market regulations. Testing is carried out by experts in our state-of-the-art laboratories or, in many cases, conveniently on-site. We are thorough, awarding a test mark only after both an initial inspection and repeated checks of production sites.

We have earned the respect and trust of industry leaders and international authorities. As a “Notified Body” within the framework of the EMC directive in Europe and listed by the US Federal Communications Commission, our test mark reflects a commitment to excellence recognized globally.

EMC testing for market access and a competitive edge

Electromagnetic compatibility testing and electromagnetic compatibility certification: advantages for manufacturers | TÜV Rheinland
EMC testing: advantages for manufacturers

Wherever you market your electric or electronic products, from Europe to Australia, Japan to North America, you are required to meet EMC regulations. Undergoing testing and obtaining certification by a respected third party service provider not only ensures market access, but sends a signal to consumers within those markets. You gain a competitive edge with our test mark, which signals quality and gives customers a reliable point of reference when making decisions in an increasingly competitive environment.

Electromagnetic compatibility testing, certification and monitoring

We provide thorough, impartial testing for the key stages of your product development:

  • Testing in the development phase to spot potential problems early and reign in costs
  • Testing at the final prototype stage prior to production, complete with a test report for market regulators and stakeholders
  • Random sample testing during mass production as part of a quality assurance program

Our experts will evaluate the electromagnetic compatibility of your product in only three steps:

  1. Testing of the product according to the 2014/30/EU EMC directive: The equipment must be designed so that the electromagnetic frequencies do not interfere with the function of other products and vice versa.
  2. Issue of the EMC test report
  3. EMC certification

In our highly-equipped testing labs focus on the following areas: Alarm systems, automotive/e-mobility, components, electric smog measurements, household and leisure products, industrial products, information technology, laboratory products, lights, medical devices, motor vehicle accessories/parts, railway technology products.

We can also conduct numerous measurements at short notice and on site in our mobile laboratory.

Your electromagnetic compatibility certification in capable hands

Our laboratories and experts around the globe have solidified our reputation as a reliable EMC testing and certification provider. We offer expertise in a wide range of industries and extensive knowledge of applicable regulations in countries and regions around the world. Our test mark is synonymous with quality and allows you to access essential certification program characteristics with a QR code.

FAQ: Frequently asked questions about EMC testing

Show all Hide all

What phenomena does EMC testing look at?

Testing, performed in a laboratory, considers electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic susceptiblity (EMS). EMI is related to the radiation waves emitted by a device and their effect on the environment, while EMS describes how a device is itself affected by disturbances coming from the environment.

How does EMI work?

At the most basic level, EMI arises from how electromagnetic emissions are propagated – either through the air or via cables or power lines. The tests for each type of emission are different.

What special challenges does information technology equipment (ITE) pose?

First, it is the category of products most likely to be affected or cause EMI. The fact that more and more of these devices rely on wireless connectivity means they are more vulnerable to electromagnetic disturbances. The mobility of these devices –they are increasingly small enough to be carried around – means they can more easily be brought into contact with other devices that cause or can suffer from interference.
