EMF Testing

We undertake EMF measurements, site surveys and assessments for a wide range of equipment and environments across a wide range of industry sectors.

Exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) can cause adverse health related conditions are now form part of the Health and Safety at Work Regulations.  Additionally an EMF assessment may be required as part of the CE marking process.

We are able to measure radiated EMF from DC to 40 GHz.

EMF Site-Survey | Health and Safety Law

If you operate, control, or work in an environment which uses high currents or equipment that uses radio frequency equipment as part of its operation, then you need to be aware of the EMF requirements in the workplace. Examples include factories, foundries, bakeries, production lines and power generation areas such as those in substations.  Particular care needs to be taken where vulnerable users are involved, for example people with pacemakers and pregnant women.

We offer site-surveys which assess the levels of EMF and can then be compared against the requirements of the new EMF Directive, 2013/35/EU, which was transposed into UK law by The Control of Electromagnetic Fields at Work Regulations (SI 2016 No 588).  It forms an important part of Health and Safety at Work.

Organisations affected by this legislation are required to hold evidence of compliance with the legal requirements of this Health and Safety Directive. In the Rail sector, GLGN1620 (published by the RSSB) additionally provides specific guidance for applying these regulations.

Each survey includes a detailed breakdown of the results and comparison with the appropriate limits, a verbal debrief and a detailed report.

Household Appliance EMF Assessment to EN 62233

We offer UKAS accredited EMF assessments for household appliances in accordance with EN 62233 which is called up by EN 60335 under the Low Voltage Directive.

Lighting EMF Assessments to EN 62493

We also offer UKAS accredited EMF measurements for lighting products in accordance with EN 62493, required for CE marking under the Low Voltage Directive.
