The aim of the event is to help you understand your EMC related legal obligations and responsibilities and the points at which EMC needs to be addressed in your project to minimise the financial risk to your business (and to avoid working for nothing).

We have been involved in many projects where the consequences of poor EMC management and control (before we were brought on-board) has led to project cost and time creep. Examples include:
The contractor only realised that EMC needed to be considered at the construction, testing and commissioning stage (GRIP 6) of a railway depot under construction; at which point we were employed. The result was that power cabling had to be dug-up and re-positioned to eliminate excessive induced voltages. Had EMC been considered at the option selection stage (GRIP 4), this hazard would have been identified and avoided, saving considerable time and money.
We were brought into a DC tramway project late as a neighbour raised concerns about EMC emissions. We carried out EM Modelling which showed that the feeding layout of the tramway led to unacceptable EMC Emissions. The resulting re-design led to a project over-run with associated punitive delay costs and penalties which could have been avoided had EMC Modelling been employed early on in the design phase.
We often come into EMC management projects after equipment has already been procured, with the result that the necessary EMC documentation from the suppliers is not available or forthcoming. This has an effect on project overruns and/or the inability to satisfactorily close
