Who wishes to help sustainably stop the decay of the electromagnetic environment, must first consider how the level of electromagnetic interference in relation to the expected level is. This is relatively simple using NoiseReporter, which is based on ITU-R P.372-12 as a basis for intended radio reception.
Essential Requirements as laid out in the EU directive for the immunity of equipment  need a measurable reference. Among the ITU Member States for that purpose the ITU-R P.372-12 is known to quantify man made noise, which is to be expected in a given environment. . In particular, the immunity tests in harmonized standards presume with their severities a given electromagnetic environment, which refer to the ITU-R P.372-12 as reference.
If you wish to qualify your environment, try NoiseReporter and download here.

 Quotation from EMC-Directive 2014/30/EU: "Equipment shall be so designed and manufactured, having regard to the state of the art, as to ensure that: ....(b) it has a level of immunity to the electromagnetic disturbance to be expected in its intended use which allows it to operate without unacceptable degradation of its intended use.
