Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing

Electrical products with active components must be tested if they have the potential to cause interference, under UK and European Union CE Mark rules.
The LIA Laboratory/The Lighting Industry Association:

Does your electronic product work as intended? Does it have the potential to cause interference with other products? If your product has active components it is legally required to be EMC tested.

This is an essential requirement for certain lighting products to support the declaration of conformity required to legitimately add a CE mark a lighting product.
