The present document contains the common requirements for marine radio communications equipment and associated ancillary equipment, in respect of ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC). The provisions of the present document apply to marine radio equipment not covered in the scope of the Council Directive on marine equipment (the "Marine Equipment Directive" 96/98/EC [i.5]). Product dependent arrangements necessary to perform the EMC tests on dedicated types of marine radio communications equipment, and the assessment of test results, are detailed in the appropriate product related parts of the present document. The present document, together with the product related part, specifies the applicable EMC tests, the methods of measurement, the limits and the performance criteria for marine radio equipment and associated ancillary equipment. In case of differences (for instance concerning special conditions, definitions, abbreviation) between the present document and the relevant product related part of the present document, the product related part takes precedence. For the further content of the present document, the expression "radio equipment" is taken to mean marine radio communications equipment, in each individual case. Technical specifications related to the antenna port of radio equipment and emissions from the enclosure port of radio equipment and combinations of radio and associated ancillary equipment are not included in the present document. Such technical specifications are normally found in the relevant product standards for the effective use of the radio spectrum.
