The implications of the latest edition of the EMC directive

The European EMC Directive (89/336/EEC, amended) can be viewed as an attempt to control this problem through legislation, although it does not cover safety issues. Unfortunately, it is unclear about how it should be applied to installations or custom equipment and systems, and this has led to it being effectively ignored by most companies active in those areas. However, on the July 2007 the 2nd edition EMC Directive, 2004/108/EC, will replace 89/336 - and it includes some specific requirements for 'fixed Installations' and for the equipment and systems supplied to them. A new guide from REO UK describes practical engineering techniques that panel builders can use to control EMI and improve reliability. Titled 'Good engineering practices in the design and construction of industrial cabinets', it is freely available from the company.
