Electromagnetic compatibility is in the spotlight this week at NSAI!

NSAI is hosting 50 international delegates in-person and online from 18 countries this week for important plenary meetings around electromagnetic compatibility.

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function acceptably in their electromagnetic environment.

The CENELEC TC 210 Electromagnetic Compatibility hybrid meetings are taking place across two days in NSAI’s Headquarters in Dublin. The delegates were welcomed by John McAuley, Chair of NSAI/ETC/TC 16 EMC Mirror Committee and by Amanda-Jane Gainford of the NSAI, the Mirror Committee’s Secretary.

Delegates from Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Finland, Slovenia and Jordan, are being represented at this week’s plenary meetings.

CLC/TC 210 continues to progress standards, including those that are harmonised for publication under a number of EU Directives. 

New issues that have arisen in recent years include the modification of standards to remove regulatory statements that conflict with the EU approach. Standards are also being developed to address the evolving worlds of wireless charging and renewable energy technologies, including wind and solar that have introduced new challenges to electromagnetic compatibility.

The Chair of the CLC/TC 210 Electromagnetic Compatibility is John Davies, and the Secretary is Nyomee Hla-Shwe Tun, both of whom are from the United Kingdom delegation.
