Test and Measurement Health Check

Our Test and Measurement Health Check is a flexible service designed to reduce risk and increase measurement confidence within a manufacturer’s EMC test facility.

Do you use your own test facilities to assist in quantifying the EMC performance of your products? This might be at the development stage, as the pre-cursor to using a third party accredited laboratory or even as the basis for CE Marking.

Testing against the requirements of relevant harmonised European standards is the most common way of technically evaluating a product for EMC as part of the CE Marking process. The consequence of unquantified in-house test results, or using or interpreting in-house test results incorrectly can be financially costly, increase the product’s time to market and risk brand reputation.

York EMC services (YES) offers an EMC facilities test and measurement review service to help you have confidence in your test results.

Avoiding unnecessary or incorrect testing

Many organisations use their own test facilities to assist them in quantifying the EMC performance of their products. These facilities range from very basic set-ups with a functional but limited capability to fully compliant laboratories.

We offer a bespoke health check tailored to your facility.
