The Changing Regulatory Environment

 EMC Regulations are constantly changing and being revised.  This seminar explains how to keep up to date, as well as explaining the details of the EMC regulations in the US, Canada, and the European Union.  This presentation discusses the regulatory process, the rationale behind the  standards, the changes that are being made, and what impact they will have on industry.  The Federal Communications Commission's standards and the  European Union EMC-Directive will be emphasized.  The limits, test procedures, marketing, labeling, and methods of compliance are all covered.

The talk will end with some "crystal ball gazing" on future regulatory trends in the United States and Europe.
