EMC-Related Functional Safety (An Update)
There are huge loopholes in safety and EMC regulations and standards, at least in the commercial, automotive, healthcare and industrial industries.
Where errors or malfunctions in electronics due to electromagnetic interference could possibly have safety implications, the resulting hazards and risks can fall right through these loopholes, leaving users at risk from unsafe products or systems, and suppliers at financial risk from liability lawsuits and product recalls.

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!
