4 Test conditions
4.1 General

For the purposes of the present document, the test conditions of the ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], clause 4, shall apply as

appropriate. Further product related test conditions for ULP-AMI, ULP-AMI-P, ULP-BWD, ULP-AMD and

ULP-AMD-P are specified in the present document.

For emission and immunity tests the normal test modulation, test arrangements, etc., as specified in the present

document, clauses 4.1 to 4.5 shall apply.

Whenever the Equipment Under Test (EUT) is provided with a detachable antenna, the EUT shall be tested with the

antenna fitted in a manner typical of normal intended use, unless otherwise specified. If the EUT can be used with

several types of antenna the test shall be repeated for each type of antenna.

ULP-AMI devices (active medical implants) and ULP-BWD (body worn devices) are designed to be implanted within

or worn in very close proximity to a human body. Implant radio systems are isolated from disturbances by the

surrounding body tissue and body worn devices are subject to field distortions due to the proximity of the body. In order

to adequately assess the EMC characteristics of ULP-AMI and ULP-BWD devices , the use of a simulated man is

necessary. See annex C for additional details. The provisions of annex C are intended to provide an operational

environment that simulates, to the extent possible, actual usage conditions for these devices. It is necessary to use this

special fixture as described in annex B when making radiated emission measurements and immunity tests with radiated

RF fields.

1 Scope

The present document together with ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], covers the assessment of all radio transceivers associated

with Ultra Low Power Active Medical Implants (ULP-AMIs), Ultra Low Power Active Medical Devices (ULP-AMDs),

Ultra Low Power Body Worn Devices (ULP-BWDs) and associated Ultra Low Power Active Medical Implant

Peripherals (ULP-AMI-Ps), Ultra Low Power Active Medical Device Peripherals (ULP-AMD-Ps) in respect of

ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC).

The radio link may be part of life supporting or non-life supporting equipment and can be classified independently of

the classification of the medical portion of the device.

The present document covers the EMC requirements for the radio functions of ultra low power implanted, body worn

and associated ultra low power peripheral devices.

Technical specifications related to the antenna port and emissions from the enclosure port of these radio system devices

are not included in the present document. Such technical specifications are found in the relevant product standards for

the effective use of the radio spectrum.

The present document applies to ULP-AMI, ULP-AMD, ULP-BWD, ULP-AMD-P and ULP-AMI-P devices with RF

power levels ranging up to 25 µW ERP and intended for operation in the frequency range 401 MHz to 402 MHz and

405 MHz to 406 MHz in accordance with the provisions of annex 12, band b) and band c), to

CEPT/ERC/REC 70-03 [i.3]. Definitions of such ULP-AMI, ULP-AMD, ULP-BWD, ULP-AMD-P and ULP-AMI-P

radio devices are found in the following functional radio standard:

• ETSI EN 302 537 [2]: "Ultra Low Power Medical Data Service (MEDS) Systems operating in the frequency

range 401 MHz to 402 MHz and 405 MHz to 406 MHz; Harmonised Standard covering the essential

requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1]".

In case of differences (for instance concerning special conditions, definitions, abbreviations) between the present

document and ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], the provisions of the present document take precedence.

The environmental classification and the emission and immunity requirements used in the present document are as

stated in the ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], except for any special conditions included in the present document.

The present document, together with ETSI EN 301 489-1 [1], are aimed to cover requirements to demonstrate an

adequate level of electromagnetic compatibility.
