Testimonials

Suggestions for Improvements? Nothing can be improved, you have been spot on with everything, excellent, and your engineer has tried everything he can to help us. Your service has been far and beyond what we had asked for.

We are very happy with the service and co-operation we get here. It's a two-way thing. Improvements? No improvements to suggest really, we get just what we need.

Our Testing was great - could not have been better, we were well looked after ? Very efficient! Your engineer was absolutely outstanding! No improvements to suggest we were happy with everything and our vehicle passed which made it even better.

We do EMC testing fairly frequently, we have always used 3C Test, even when you were at Grendon, good lot of guys here, we are happy with the testing, that's why I always come back!

Thank you very much for arranging the tests at such short notice. We really appreciate your help. I would like specially to thank Matt and the team. He was very helpful during the test and kept me well informed with test progress.

Your facilities are excellent, and the engineers are very friendly, very helpful. I know you are not the cheapest but who wants a cheap test house that tells you your product has failed and throws it back at you, sometimes you cannot even speak to an engineer, just sales people. How you can judge a company is when you have problems and how they react, I am very impressed with the service and will certainly return.

Standard EN 60601-1-2 covers EMC requirements for all devices, equipment and systems covered by the Medical Device Directive. Although test techniques and requirements are derived from the basic standards, such as the EN 61000 series, EN 60601-1-2 recognises that due to the varied and specialist nature of medical equipment  test levels should be applied with the products end use in mind.

The ever increasing number of electronic products used in the medical industry has increased the need for awareness of the correct operation of the product within its intended electromagnetic environment. This is of critical importance in that the potential malfunctioning of a product may create not only an inconvenience, but in some cases could result in life threatening situations.

Within the EU, CE marking for medical products is mandatory and applicable directives for achieving this are:

  • The EMC council directive 89/336/EEC, which mandates emissions and immunity standards for all electrical and electronic products
  • The Medical Device Directive (MDD) 93/42/EEC, which covers all instruments used in the diagnosis and treatment of humans.
  • The Active Implant Medical Device Directive (AIMDD) 90/385/EEC, which covers all medical devices that may be implanted into the human body.
  • In-Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Directive 98/79/EEC, which covers instruments and equipment used for examining substances taken from the human body for diagnostic purposes.
