Harmonized standards:


This part of IEC 61000 for EMC immunity requirements applies to electrical and electronic
apparatus intended for use in residential, commercial and light-industrial environments.
Immunity requirements in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered. No tests need to
be performed at frequencies where no requirements are specified.
This generic EMC immunity standard is applicable if no relevant dedicated product or
product-family EMC immunity standard exists.
This standard applies to apparatus intended to be directly connected to a low-voltage public
mains network or connected to a dedicated DC source which is intended to interface between
the apparatus and the low-voltage public mains network. This standard applies also to
apparatus which is battery operated or is powered by a non-public, but non-industrial, lowvoltage
power distribution system if this apparatus is intended to be used in the locations
described below:
The environments encompassed by this standard are residential, commercial and lightindustrial
locations, both indoor and outdoor. The following list, although not comprehensive,
gives an indication of locations which are included:
– residential properties, for example houses, apartments;
– retail outlets, for example shops, supermarkets;
– business premises, for example offices, banks;
– areas of public entertainment, for example cinemas, public bars, dance halls;
– outdoor locations, for example petrol stations, car parks, amusement and sports centres;
– light-industrial locations, for example workshops, laboratories, service centres.
Locations which are characterised by being supplied directly at low voltage from the public
mains network are considered to be residential, commercial or light-industrial.
The object of this standard is to define the immunity test requirements for apparatus specified
in the scope in relation to continuous and transient, conducted and radiated disturbances
including electrostatic discharges.
The immunity requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of immunity for
apparatus at residential, commercial and light-industrial locations. The levels do not,
however, cover extreme cases, which may occur at any location, but with an extremely low
probability of occurrence. Not all disturbance phenomena have been included for testing
purposes in this standard but only those considered as relevant for the equipment covered by
this standard. These test requirements represent essential electromagnetic compatibility
immunity requirements.
