Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 6-8: Generic standards - Emission standard for professional equipment in commercial and light-industrial locations

This generic EMC emission standard is applicable only if no relevant dedicated product or
product family EMC emission standard has been published.
This part of IEC 61000 for emission requirements applies to electrical and electronic equipment
intended for use in commercial and light-industrial (see 3.1.3) locations. This document applies
to equipment that satisfy the following restrictions of use:
• is defined as professional equipment (see 3.1.13),
• is professionally installed and maintained (see 3.1.14 and Clause 6),
• is not intended to be used in residential locations (see 3.1.16).
IEC 61000-6-3 applies to electrical and electronic equipment intended for use at commercial
and light-industrial locations that do not satisfy these restrictions.
The intention is that all equipment used in the residential, commercial and light-industrial
environments are covered by IEC 61000-6-3 or IEC 61000-6-8. If there is any doubt, the
requirements in IEC 61000-6-3 apply.
Emission requirements within the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered.
The conducted and radiated emission requirements in the frequency range up to 400 GHz are
considered essential and have been selected to provide an adequate level of protection of radio
reception in the defined electromagnetic environment. Not all disturbance phenomena have
been included for testing purposes but only those considered relevant for the equipment
intended to operate within the locations included within this document.
The emission requirements in this document are not intended to be applicable to the intentional
transmissions and their harmonics from a radio transmitter as defined by the ITU.
NOTE 1 Safety considerations are not covered by this document.
NOTE 2 In special cases, situations will arise where the levels specified in this document will not offer adequate
protection; for example where a sensitive receiver is used in close proximity to an equipment. In these instances,
employ special mitigation measures to reduce any impact.
NOTE 3 Disturbances generated in fault conditions of equipment are not covered by this document.
NOTE 4 Equipment which complies with IEC 61000-6-3 are suitable for use within these defined locations.

Compatibilité électromagnétique (CEM) - Partie 6-8: Normes génériques - Norme d’émission pour les matériels professionnels utilisés dans des environnements commerciaux et de l’industrie légère

IEC 61000-6-8: 2020 est une norme d'émissions CEM générique et n'est applicable que si aucune norme d'émissions CEM de produit ou de famille de produits dédiée n'a été publiée. La présente partie de l’IEC 61000 concernant les exigences d’émission s'applique aux matériels électriques et électroniques destinés à être utilisés dans des environnements commerciaux et de l'industrie légère (voir 3.1.3). Le présent document s’applique aux matériels qui satisfont aux restrictions d’utilisation suivantes:  qui sont définis comme matériels professionnels (voir 3.1.13), qui sont installés et maintenus par des professionnels (voir 3.1.14 et Article 6), qui ne sont pas destinés à être utilisés dans des environnements résidentiels (voir 3.1.16).  L‘IEC 61000-6-3 s’applique aux matériels électriques et électroniques destinés à être utilisés dans des environnements commerciaux et de l'industrie légère qui ne satisfont pas à ces restrictions. L’objectif est que tous les matériels utilisés dans les environnements résidentiels, commerciaux et de l’industrie légère soient couverts par l’IEC 61000-6-3 ou l’IEC 61000-6-8. En cas de doute, les exigences spécifiées dans l’IEC 61000-6-3 s'appliquent. Les exigences d’émission dans la plage de fréquences de 0 Hz à 400 GHz sont couvertes. Les exigences d’émissions conduites et rayonnées dans la plage de fréquences jusqu'à 400 GHz sont considérées comme essentielles et ont été choisies de manière à assurer un niveau adéquat de protection de la réception radioélectrique dans l’environnement électromagnétique défini. Tous les phénomènes perturbateurs n'ont pas été inclus pour les besoins de l'essai. Seuls l'ont été ceux considérés comme pertinents pour les matériels destinés à fonctionner dans les environnements couverts par le présent document. Les exigences d’émission spécifiées dans le présent document ne sont pas destinées à s’appliquer aux transmissions intentionnelles et à leurs harmoniques provenant d’un émetteur tel que défini par l'UIT. NOTE 1 Ce document ne traite pas des aspects de sécurité. NOTE 2 Dans des cas particuliers, des situations apparaissent dans lesquelles les niveaux spécifiés dans le présent document n’offrent pas la protection adéquate, lorsqu’un récepteur sensible est utilisé très proche d’un matériel par exemple. Dans de tels cas, utiliser des mesures d’atténuation particulières afin de réduire tout effet éventuel. NOTE 3 Les perturbations générées dans les conditions de défaut du matériel ne sont pas couvertes par le présent document. NOTE 4 Les matériels conformes à l’IEC 61000-6-3 conviennent à une utilisation dans ces environnements définis.

ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC) –
Part 6-8: Generic standards – Emission standard for professional
equipment in commercial and light-industrial locations
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC) –
Part 6-8: Generic standards – Emission standard for professional
equipment in commercial and light-industrial locations
1 Scope

This generic EMC emission standard is applicable only if no relevant dedicated product or

product family EMC emission standard has been published.

This part of IEC 61000 for emission requirements applies to electrical and electronic equipment

intended for use in commercial and light-industrial (see 3.1.3) locations. This document applies

to equipment that satisfy the following restrictions of use:
• is defined as professional equipment (see 3.1.13),
• is professionally installed and maintained (see 3.1.14 and Clause 6),
• is not intended to be used in residential locations (see 3.1.16).

IEC 61000-6-3 applies to electrical and electronic equipment intended for use at commercial

and light-industrial locations that do not satisfy these restrictions.

The intention is that all equipment used in the residential, commercial and light-industrial

environments are covered by IEC 61000-6-3 or IEC 61000-6-8. If there is any doubt, the

requirements in IEC 61000-6-3 apply.
Emission requirements within the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz are covered.

The conducted and radiated emission requirements in the frequency range up to 400 GHz are

considered essential and have been selected to provide an adequate level of protection of radio

reception in the defined electromagnetic environment. Not all disturbance phenomena have

been included for testing purposes but only those considered relevant for the equipment

intended to operate within the locations included within this document.

The emission requirements in this document are not intended to be applicable to the intentional

transmissions and their harmonics from a radio transmitter as defined by the ITU.

NOTE 1 Safety considerations are not covered by this document.

NOTE 2 In special cases, situations will arise where the levels specified in this document will not offer adequate

protection; for example where a sensitive receiver is used in close proximity to an equipment. In these instances,

employ special mitigation measures to reduce any impact.

NOTE 3 Disturbances generated in fault conditions of equipment are not covered by this document.

NOTE 4 Equipment which complies with IEC 61000-6-3 are suitable for use within these defined locations.

2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content
