Safety and compliance are twin pillars of EMC certification
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
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, - VN 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:
- 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.
- Issue of the EMC test report
- 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.

TÜV Rheinland: a Globally Renowned Test Authority
The German Federal Network Agency for Electricity, Gas, Telecommunications, Post and Locomotives, BNetzA for short, has listed us as a 'notified body' in line with the EMC directive. This lets us evaluate the conformity of your products and whether they deviate from standardized norms, or where no standardized norms exist.
We are listed as an authorized testing facility by the Federal Communications Commission in the US. This entitles our employees to carry out commissioned tests both in Europe and internationally.
As a national certification institute, we adopted the CB scheme many years ago. The CB process counts as a basis for national certification in many other countries in the European Union, also in countries that are not yet official member states.
