The International Special Committee on Radio Interference (CISPR) is a part of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and sets international standards to control electromagnetic interference (EMI) in electrical and electronic devices. Their goal is to protect radio reception ranging from 9kHz to 400 GHz from interference caused by the operation of electrical or electronic systems within the electromagnetic environment.
Standards are divided into three different categories, basic standards, generic standards, and product standards (chart of CISPR standards by category). Basic standards give the overall conditions or rules for the testing of EMC related performance of products, systems, or installations. They are to be used as a general guide and are not dedicated to a specific product or family of products, as they do not contain particular limits or product performance specifications. Generic standards specify the EMC requirements and test procedures pertaining to all products or systems operating in a particular environment as long as no specific EMC standards for that particular product family, system, or installation exist. The test procedures and limits are included in the generic standards category. Product standards relate to specific products, systems, or installations where particular conditions need to be considered by defining specific requirements, test procedures, and limits.
