Testimonials

Of all the Test Houses we use we get the best progress, best technicians and best accounts dept from 3C Test, also the best coffee.

Presentation is important, the grandeur and opulence and the fresh clear-cut feel of your building is superb. Along with the new facilities it is exactly what we wanted for our testing. We are testing to stringent spec and the automotive connection here is important to us! In the past we have built up a good relationship with 3C through e mails and quite complex negotiations regarding our requirements. I enjoy coming here.

I would like to thank you for your time yesterday, very much appreciated and I would like to say how impressed I was with your company structure and layout. Look forward to seeing you in the near future with some new products.

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.

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.

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.
