Exhibition sets sights on promoting compliance

One of the UK’s leading conferences focused on electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), EMC UK, is set to re-launch in 2020 as EMC and Compliance International. Returning to Newbury Racecourse in Newbury, Berkshire on May 20 and 21 2020, the free-to-enter event will include an exhibition alongside a series of technical forums and workshops to help equip engineers with all they need to know for compliance with EMC and other Directives, Regulations and standards.

The event, which is returning to the recently improved venue after five years, is run by EMC Exhibitions and Training Ltd, now in collaboration with online EMC educational resource EMC Standards. The exhibition will bring together specialists to provide electrical, electronic and design engineers with guidance and advice to tackle EMC and all other compliance issues.

EMC and Compliance International 2020 will feature training workshops by global EMC expert Keith Armstrong, who has delivered similar courses globally for almost 25 years. These sessions will cover various aspects of managing compliance with the latest EMC directives, see here for the training workshop programme.

It will also feature a series of six Technical Workshops, with invited papers from experts covering a range of very interesting and important topics, see here for a summary of the Technical Workshops.

Cost-effective compliance with EMC, safety and other Directives, Regulations and standards is now a very important issue for all engineers working in all industries and applications.

“Knowledge of compliance is a vital part of modern engineering, and understanding the various aspects of EMC is tremendously beneficial for engineers,” explained Keith Armstrong. “Technical excellence in design, engineering and installation of equipment is but one part of the puzzle. Engineers and their managers should have a strong understanding of the importance of EMC, as well as the directives that set the standards.”

The EMC and Compliance International 2020 event will set out to share this knowledge. In addition to the workshops and exhibition, the event will feature a specialist speaker area called ‘ten minutes with an expert’. Sessions will cover subjects such as EMC for specific applications, pre-compliance testing and insight into international standards, including the radio equipment directive.

Industry professionals set to speak at the event include Professor Ian MacDiarmid, visiting professor in Applied Electromagnetics at the University of Liverpool, and Geraldine Salt, who is standards development manager for EMC, Energy, Oil and Gas at the British Standards Institute (BSI). A full list of speakers is available on the EMC and Compliance International website.

Tickets to the two-day event are free and registration is now open on the event website.
