South Africa: Release of SANS 2332:2017
The SANS 2332:2017 (ED. 1.00) “Electromagnetic compatibility of multimedia equipment - Emission requirements” has been published. The standard applies to multimedia equipment (MME) and having a rated r.m.s. AC or DC supply voltage not exceeding 600 V. SANS 2332: 2017 is an identical implementation of CISPR 32:2015.
Via a SABS authorised laboratory, manufacturers can now obtain SANS 2332:2017 test reports for any device falling under the SABS approval scope.
SANS 213:2011 and SANS 222:2009 are still valid. Acceptance of SANS 222 and 213 test reports by SABS will run concurrently with that of SANS 2332.
Conclusion: SANS 2332:2017 test reports are legally accepted by SABS for the purposes of EMC approval on an equal basis with SANS 213 and SANS 222 test reports.
