The EMC Directive Explained is a one-day course providing a full understanding of the current EMC Directive 2014/30/EU, which came into force on 20th April 2016, replacing 2004/108/EC with no transition period.
It includes comprehensive guidelines on the requirements and contents of EMC documentation including Technical Documentation and the Declarations of Conformity (DoC); essential aspects of ensuring compliance with the EMC Directive.
