Our EMC testing and certification services ensure your multimedia equipment complies with EN 55032, 35 and CISPR (International Special Committee on Radio Interference) 32, 35 standards and gains fast and easy GMA (Global Market Access).
Why is Multimedia EMC testing important?
Due to the convergence of technologies, many electronic devices are now classified as "multimedia" rather than Information Technology (IT) or audio/video since they integrate more than one technology and include some form of radio/wireless functionality.
With accreditation to ISO17025 by UKAS, DAkkS, NVLAP and A2LA, Element can lead your way to compliance with a broader variety of EMC standards for your products so that they can be shipped to multiple markets inside and outside the EU, North America, and more.
Our Multimedia EMC testing services
- EN55032/CISPR 32 – Emission requirements
- EN55035/CISPR 35 – Immunity requirements
- IEC/EN62368-1 – Safety of audio/video, information technology, and communication equipment
The testing of multimedia equipment is more complicated than merely testing against the standards – one needs to consider the use, electromagnetic environments, frequencies, functions, radiated emissions, conducted emissions and the technology used to assess the risks that the product may cause or experience.
As part of EN 55032/EN 55035 and CISPR 32/CISPR 35 assessments, our global team of experts provide advisory services on how to classify your multimedia equipment (MME) to Class A and Class B. Class B includes MME that is intended primarily for use in the residential environment and meets the Class B limits whilst Class A is all other MME which satisfies the Class A limits. Element can also support you with developing test plans to ensure all the standard requirements are considered.

Multimedia Equipment and EN 55032: When to Choose Class A or B
Under EN 55032, any equipment primarily used in a residential environment must meet Class B limits. All other equipment must comply with Class A limits.READ MORE
What is the EN 55035, and what's changing?
EN 55103-2 and EN 55024 are shortly to be withdrawn. Manufacturers must start using EN 55035:2017/A11:2020 to demonstrate compliance to the EMC Directive for CE Marking.READ MORE
