A new EMC testing facility has been launched by UK-based TÜV Product Service. This is a unique “spot check” testing facility for retailers, who can now determine if the electronic products they offer comply with existing standards and laws. Specifically, the testing will confirm whether household electrical items such as TVs, camcorders, and game consoles will interfere with other electronics or will suffer degraded performance because of interference from other devices. Most significantly, the testing will determine whether radio communications are affected. Moreover, the new facility will offer this testing at a reduced cost and quicker turn-around time than traditional EMC testing. It is hoped that this testing will reassure merchants whose wares are subject to regular inspection by authorities who check for compliance to EMC standards.
