Information Technology (IT) & Audio-visual Equipment

 

 

 

This is equipment, systems, components and sub-assemblies which use digital techniques for signal processing, computation, display, storage, data processing, switching, control, and telecommunication.

 

IT applies to many products, audio-visual equipment as well as computer equipment, but some products though they may contain IT may not be subject to the same rules and regulations.

 

In the last decade, IT has had a phenomenal impact on productivity, education, society and our personal lives and to maintain this development, it is important to make sure that IT equipment is safe to use and characterised according to where it is used.

In the UK and Europe, technical standards for ITE are set by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and published in the Official Journal (OJ).

 

The OJ informs manufacturers of the current and forthcoming requirements for demonstrating conformity with EU Directives, including:-

 

1) Low Voltage Directive (LVD) 2006/95/EC

2) Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 2004/108/EC

3) Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) Directive 2013/35/EU

4) Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)

5) Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive 2012/19/EU

Cranage has specialist knowledge and experience of testing ITE and offers technical services for people and businesses involved in the supply chain of information technology.

 

The table below specifically lists the scope of our UKAS accreditation as a testing laboratory for manufacturers of ITE in the UK:-
