Opportunities in the Risk Management of EMC

Opportunities in the Risk Management of EMC image #1


It is not an exaggeration to say that we are witnessing the birth of a brand new industry – Risk Management of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) – which will be needed in most safety-related and high-reliability applications/industries.

But at the moment there are (effectively) no resources available that can satisfy its requirements, either from EMC test laboratories or functional safety assessors.

A great deal of work needs to be done to prepare manufacturing industry, test laboratories and safety assessors for these requirements,for which a large demand will build up by 2021.

The new opportunities now available include:

• Academic teaching at all levels
• Academic research
• Vocational training courses
• Computer-aided simulation
• Test methods and specialized test equipment
• Verification/validation techniques other than testing
• Development of policies and procedures
• Safety Assessor services
• Accreditation services

This paper briefly introduces the rapidly growing need for the
above, and discusses each of these opportunities in turn.
