Canada Updates Industrial, Scientific and Medical Equipment Standard ICES-001

The Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISED) has recently updated the Interference-Causing Equipment Standard, ICES-001 on Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Equipment. The new version will replace ICES-001, issue 4 “Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Radio Frequency Generator”.

The new revision sets the minimum requirements applicable to industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) equipment. Among them are such requirements as limits for radiated and conducted radio frequency emissions produced by ISM equipment and administrative requirements. It should be read in conjunction with the CSA CISPR 11:19, Industrial, scientific and medical equipment – Radio-frequency disturbance characteristics – Limits and methods of measurement.

The comments on the draft have been already received and included in the revision 5. The following amendments were made taking into account the comments:

  • Transition period was extended from 6 months to 1 year;
  • Induction cooking appliances were specified as Class B equipment;
  • Requirements for operating induction cooking appliances during the test were added;
  • Measured validation factor shall be equal to or larger than 3dB, instead of ±2dB for a large loop antenna system
  • Tabulated values of the reference validation factor were added.

Once the transition period is finished all products subject to this standard shall comply with issue 5 of ICES-001 in Canada.
