EN IEC 55014 is the EMC testing standards for “Household Appliances, electric tools, and similar apparatus” (known as HHA) which may cause interference to radio reception, or may be effected by electromagnetic interference such as: office machines, movie projectors, electric toys, blenders, and toasters, restaurant equipment, and similar devices. Devices not otherwise referenced but are used in the home and are not referenced in other standards fall into this category. EN IEC 55014 testing is used to show compliance to the EU EMC Directive 2014/30/EU. Just request a quote and one of our experts will be able to assess your situation.

EN IEC 55014 is composed of EN IEC 55014-1 and EN IEC 55014-2


EN IEC 55014-1 is the requirement for EMC emissions testing. The latest version is EN IEC 55014-1:2006, A1:2009/A2:2011. It includes Radiated and Conducted Emissions. Conducted emissions may include testing for line harmonic emissions and limitation of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker. Conducted emissions may also include those emissions determined to be terminal disturbances and discontinuous, often referred to as “clicks.”


EN IEC 55014-2 is the requirement for EMC immunity testing. The latest version is EN IEC 55014-2:2015. It includes:

        Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

        Fast Transients (EFT)

        Conducted Disturbances, induced by radio frequency field

        Radio frequency electromagnetic fields


        Voltage Dips, Interruptions and Variations

EMC testing may be required for compliance for certain devices to the associated safety requirements for HHA products under EN60335 electrical product safety testing and subsequent compliance for the EU Low Voltage Directive. See EN IEC 60335 testing.

Additional testing for electromagnetic field emissions of household appliances and similar apparatus with regard to human exposure, found under EN IEC 62233 may also be applicable.

EN IEC 55014 is a harmonized standard. Not all products are required to do all tests.
