BS EN 55032:2015 Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment. Emission

BS EN 55032:2015

Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment. Emission Requirements

Status : Current, Superseded   Published : July 2015 Replaced By : BS EN 55032:2015+A11:2020



What is this standard about?

It establishes requirements that will allow radio services to operate as intended in the frequency range 9 kHz to 400 GHz. It also specifies procedures to ensure the reproducibility of measurement and the repeatability of results. 

Who is this standard for?

  • Manufacturers of multimedia equipment
  • EMC compliance and design engineers
  • Specifiers and purchasers of this type of equipment 
  • Test labs
  • Users of this type of equipment
  • Regulators

Why should you use this standard? 

This standard covers the protection requirements in Annex I, Article 1(a) of the EU Directive 2004/108/EC, and essential requirements of Article 3.1(b) (immunity only) of EU Directive 1999/5/ED. Compliance with this standard therefore provides presumption of conformity with the specified essential requirements of the Directives concerned. 

What’s changed since the last update?

This standard is identical to CISPR 32:2015, incorporating corrigendum June 2016 which corrects Table B.1. 

Together with BS EN 50561-1:2013 it supersedes BS EN 55032:2012 which will be withdrawn on 5 May 2018.
