Technical Documentation Assessments

The 2016 UK EMC Regulations allows third-party assessment of technical documentation in the form of an Approved Body Assessment.  This provides an examination of the Technical Documentation by an independent EMC expert to determine whether the apparatus covered fully conforms to the essential requirements of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016.

Who needs an Approved Body assessment?

A manufacturer may benefit from an independent assessment of technical documentation in a variety of cases, including where

  • The manufacturer is uncertain about the validity of its products’ technical documentation
  • Standards are only applied in part (Extended Justification)
  • The environment is non-standard, electromagnetically severe or has other specific characteristics
  • Additional assurance of product compliance is required
  • Alternatively, an assessment by an Approved Body may be a contractual requirement to provide increased assurance that the product or system is fully compliant with the Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016.
