EMC Testing Generic Standards

Commonly used standards for used generic EMC testing standards

Products include any product that requires EMC testing that is not within the scope of any product standard for the intended market.

Note: Any product with a radio transmitter/receiver will also require additional wireless/radio performance testing for information on radio testing click here.

Immunity testing

None

ISED (previously IC) – Canada EMC compliance

Emissions testing

Typically a valid FCC test report with the relevant cross-references are deemed to be sufficient

Immunity testing

None
