Experts in EMC pre-compliance, problem solving and design for EMC

Unit 3 Compliance is a West Yorkshire test lab and consultancy specialising in Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing, troubleshooting/problem solving, pre-compliance and product design support.

We have the skills and the tools to fix your EMC problems quickly and effectively.


COVID-19 Update (July 2021): Unit 3 Compliance is still open with plenty of products coming through the door for testing. Our Bradford test laboratory is still accepting customers on-site in a limited format with health and safety precautions in force. Customers are equally welcome to send equipment for remote testing. Design reviews and consultancy services are unaffected.

I hope that you are remaining safe, well, and productive. We’re looking forward to a cup of tea, a biscuit, and a catch up with you all when things settle down.

See you soon,

James

Our flexibility and low cost makes us an ideal partner for any EMC pre-compliance testing you require.

From integrating wireless capability such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to supporting your product through manufacturing and into service we’ve got the EMC knowledge you need to make your product a success.

In addition we offer environmental test services such as temperature/humidity and vibration/shock testing.


CE / UKCA Marking + More

To get your product onto the global market you need to be up to speed with all the relevant regulations but if you aren’t familiar with them this can be a time consuming activity.

It’s not just EMC either – we also advise our customers on electrical safety (LVD), RoHS, WEEE – everything you need to get your product on sale.

We also love a good a report and can help you build or review your Technical File and associated documentation.
