Amendment to the EMC directive now in writing

As reported before (see article) the draft EMC Directive contained a new dangerous definition of electromagnetic disturbance in its first draft. IARU R1 PRC group had inserted a proposal for an amendment 31 to change the proposed definition of electromagnetic disturbance back to the current definition. The amendment was carried by a large majority.

Now we have written confirmation, because the Minutes of the IMCO committee have been published. Under Agenda Item 39 you can see that amendment No. 31 was accepted. In the list of Amendments you find our proposal text.

The first reading of the EMC Directive in the European Parliament is scheduled for Nov. 2012.
