EMC Compliance Testing

Kiwa Blackwood is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No. 2667). We test appliances for EMC compliance in our state of the art laboratory in South Wales.

If you need to demonstrate that a product is fully compliant with a test standard then full EMC compliance testing is the option for you.

Does your hair dryer interfere with your TV? If so then this is an EMC problem, either the hairdryer is producing more electromagnetic noise then the requirements needed to meet the appropriate test standards or the TV is not Immune to such noise.  Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing is the ability to measure the interference between finished products, in order for those to work in their intended environments without causing disruption to products in close proximity to each other.

Full EMC compliance testing is application all of the tests required for your product according to the appropriate standard(s). The testing is charged after consideration of the product against the test standards. Accredited test reports and test certificates are provided at no extra charge.

Should we have issues with any particular test during EMC compliance testing then we are able to pause the compliance test and work to resolve those issues. Testing can then be resumed once a fix has been established. If needed we can revert to EMC pre-compliance testing at pre-compliance testing rates.
