Complying with the EMC Directive
On July 20, 2007, the European Union’s (EU’s) original EMC Directive (89/336/EC) was replaced by its 2nd Edition: 2004/108/EC , and has an official Guide . All of the 27 EU Member States now have national legislation implementing 2004/108/EC. (In the U.K., it is ‘the EMC Regulations 2006, SI 2006 No.3418’  which also has an official guide .)
2004/108/EC does not cover safety issues due to EM interference, and neither does it cover human health issues caused by exposure to EM fields.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
