Long awaited EU list of important EMC standards

Short transitional period for many products

The following EMC Directive standards were listed in the Official Journal of the EU (L366/2020), on 4.11.2020. They give rise to a presumption of conformity as of that date:


EN 55011:2016

EN 55011:2016/A1:2017

EN 55011:2016/A11:2020

Industrial, scientific and medical devices

- Radio disturbance

- Limits and methods of measurement

EN 55014-1:2017

EN 55014-1:2017/A11:2020

Electromagnetic compatibility

- Requirements for household appliances and similar apparatus

- Part 1: Emitted interference

EN IEC 55015:2019

EN IEC 55015:2019/A11:2020

Limits and methods of measurement for radio disturbance of electrical lighting and similar electrical devices

EN 55032:2015

EN 55032:2015/A11:2020

Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment and installations

- Requirements for emitted interference

EN 62026-2:2013

EN 62026-2:2013/A1:2019

Low-voltage switchgear and control gear

- Controller device interfaces (CDIs)

- Part 2: Actuator sensor interface (AS-i)

The preceding standards lose their presumption of conformity on 5th May 2022, which means that the transition period is only 18 months.

The first four standards are new editions with a new European annex. The standards are all familiar from the IEC. The changes are considerable.
