PROPOSED CHANGES TO EMC STANDARDS 30th June 2015

PROPOSED CHANGES TO EMC STANDARDS 

Last month the LPRA council drew the urgent attention of our members to the proposed changes to EMC standards that would have a significant negative impact on European Business.  The proposals tabled at ETSI WG EMC concerned proposed revisions to EN301489-1 and EN301489-3 and would have a massive impact on manufacturers of Short Range Devices adding significant cost to testing and the approval process. (please see link below to related documentation).   Philippe Magneron, LPRA Council Member has asked for a joint working group to be setup within TG28 to deal with the concerns.  As it stands no rational reason has been put forward to support the change.  The deadline of the 30th June for members’  input has passed so the LPRA Council are in the process of organising a plan of action.

 

All relevant documentation can be accessed on the link below:

We will of course keep all members fully informed of all developments.

 

PROPOSED CHANGES TO EMC STANDARDS : CALL FOR INPUT

The LPRA council wish to draw the urgent attention of our members to the proposed changes to EMC standards that would have a significant negative impact on European Business.  The proposals tabled at ETSI WG EMC concerned proposed revisions to EN301489-1 and EN301489-3 and would have a massive impact on manufacturers of Short Range Devices adding significant cost to testing and the approval process. (please see links below to related documentation).

Mr Philippe Magneron, LPRA Council Member has asked for a joint working group to be setup within TG28 to deal with the concerns.  As it stands no rational reason has been put forward to support the change and hence LPRA members are urged to send their comments / reactions and technical material to the LPRA Secretariat before 30th June 2015, in order for the LPRA to organise our plan of action.
