Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Assurance Process
|Publication Date:||2 June 2012|
This Network Rail standard:
a) specifies the assurance process for the management and control of EMC to meet the requirements of the EMC Regulations (2006);
b) specifies the standards for the acceptance of equipment for integration onto the railway system;
c) specifies best practice based on current European and Network Rail EMC engineering standards;
d) applies to all new or modified infrastructure, including apparatus, fixed and mobile installations, all types of rail vehicles and rolling stock on the operational railway.
This standard does not specify requirements for equipment that is classified as "inherently benign". A list of examples of "inherently benign" equipment is in Appendix A.
This standard specifies how Network Rail manages the risks of asset failure associated with known uncontrolled electromagnetic phenomena.
It supports the Network Rail policy requirements as specified in NR/L1/RSE/30040, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Strategy for Network Rail, and its legal obligations under the EMC Regulations (2006).
