Electrical lighting and similar equipment

EMC compliance for the RCM, CE, FCC and IC

Commonly used standards for EMC Testing Lighting Products and similar equipment

Products include: LED, led, lighting, lights, tube light, high bay, MR16, strip light, GU10, fluorescent and many more.

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