Amendments EMC Directive (2014/30/EU)

Amendments EMC Directive (2014/30/EU): the European Commission has recently made updates to its electrical and electronic equipment safety standards. In effect, this updated list is important to all manufacturers of CE marked products that have used European harmonized standards to prove CE compliance.

Do you have applied standards to prove compliance with the aforementioned directive? In that case we recommend you to check the new list of standards to see if any of the standard you applied have been updated, or whether there are new standards available for your products.

When standards have been updated by this list, you need to re-evaluate your products against the updated standard and update your Declaration of Conformity.
