The Directive: EMC 2014/30/EU
The EMC Directive 2014/30/EU (Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive) of the European Parliament and of the Council was published on March 29, 2014 in the Official Journal of the European Union, L 96/79, and replaced Directive 2004/108/EC on the 18th April 2014.
The EMC Directive 2014/30/EU regulates the electromagnetic compatibility of equipment – apparatus and fixed installations.
In order to achieve this objective, equipment need to comply with the essential requirements of the EMC Directive when it is placed on the market and/or put into service. The requirements limit electromagnetic emissions to a level that will not affect radio and telecommunications or other equipment and require products to have immunity to electromagnetic disturbances.
