Icasa, SABS take next step for EMI/EMC certificates of compliance issuance

Post the June 2016 signing of a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on a revised approach for the issue of Electromagnetic Interference/Compatibility (EMI/EMC) Certificates of Compliance (CoCs), the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) and the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) have lodged a notification with the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The main purpose for CoC issuances is to ensure that the limits of radiated and electromagnetic disturbances emanating from electrical and nontelecommunications electronic equipment and products comply with Icasa’s regulated standards.
