Central to the operation of Unit 3 Compliance is our EMC test laboratory. We are well equipped to perform a wide range of tests and all testing is performed by experts. We can support you in many ways from quick look-see and pre-compliance tests through to final EMC measurements for self certification.

We work to the guiding principles of ISO 17025 but are not UKAS accredited allowing us to offer a good balance of quality and value in EMC testing services.

Test Capabilites

Our current test capabilities are listed below. Not only are these capabilities being expanded all the time but we can support other tests not listed here. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
