This part of CISPR 16 is designated a basic standard, which specifies the manner in which measurement uncertainty is to be taken in to account in determining compliance with CISPR limits. The material is also relevant to any EMC test when interpretation of the results and conclusions reached will be impacted by the uncertainty of the instrumentation used during the testing. Annex A contains the background material used in providing the amount of measurement uncertainty found in generating the CISPR values shown in Clause 4 and hence provides valuable background material for those needing both initial and further information on measurement uncertainty and how to take into account individual uncertainties in the measurement chain. The annex however is not intended to be a tutorial of user manual or to be copied when making uncertainty calculations. For that, the references shown in the bibliography should be used.
Measurement instrumentation specifications are given in CISPR 16-1, while the methods of measurement are covered in CISPR 16-2. Further information and background on CISPR and radio disturbances is given in CISPR 16-3. The other parts of CISPR 16-4 contain further information on uncertainties in general, statistics and limit modelling.
