EMC & Radio Frequency Testing

Measuring radio and electromagnetic emissions

You are here

  • Safe is a device that works without interference

    Nearly all electronic devices generate some form of unwanted interference – it is unavoidable. However, to ensure safe operation, they may only emit a limited amount and they should be immune to a certain level of electromagnetic radiation (radiated and conducted). To ensure the safety and health of the users of electronic devices and the environment, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio frequency (RF) testing is used to analyze the ability of the devices to operate as anticipated when in proximity to other electronic devices or in the presence of electromagnetic emissions.

    In addition, DEKRA performs SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) testing to measure the amount of radio frequency (RF) absorbed by the body when using a specific wireless device.

    Preparing for market access

    DEKRA’s global network of testing laboratories and specialized experts can help you get your products tested for electromagnetic compatibility according to international standards. The DEKRA test reports demonstrate that your devices comply with the applicable or requested EMC and RF requirements, preparing them for market access and success without interference. In addition, we offer innovative services tailored to customer-specific requirements.

    DEKRA’s reports are valued by customers, governments and others. Besides performing EMC tests in our global network of labs, we perform tests on-site, so testing your large machines and installations is no problem. We work in a flexible way, taking your requirements and processes into account.

    - Sedat Eser (Operational Manager EMC, Europe)

    At DEKRA, we provide testing and certification for EMC as a Notified Body under the European Electromagnetic Compatibility directive 2014/30/EU. We help you gain access to EU markets and also to countries outside the European Union, such as the USA, South Africa and Australia. The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has listed us as a Conformity Assessment Body (CAB). This means that all our EMC test results are accepted by the FCC and grant you immediate access to the US market.
