relating to emission standard for sound and television broadcast receivers
Orgalime welcomes the opportunity to provide its views to the experts in the EMCD Working Party on the publication of the new edition of the European EMC emission standard for broadcast receivers (radios, television sets) and associated equipment (DVD-players, recorders) EN 55013:2009 in the Official Journal of the European Union.
We understand that the Commission has postponed its decision to publish this adopted Cenelec standard under the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC as a harmonised standard further to a negative opinion of the mandated CENELEC EMC consultant.
However, Orgalime believes that the European Commission should publish the reference of standard EN 55013:2009 in the OJEU without any change and without further delay. In our view, this version of the standard, which received the wide support from all parties involved, covers the essential emission requirements of the EMC directive, for the sound technical reasons which are detailed in the link below.
