We are pleased to announce that ACB continues to run its training seminars in Europe for anyone involved with compliance and certification of radio equipment, or devices containing radio modules.
Join ACB for a comprehensive overview of compliance, testing, methods and requirements for EMC
and Radio Regulations. The seminars will cover methods of evaluation and certification requirements for equipment with demands for EMC and radio compliance, with specific focus on radio regulation compliance.
As with previous years, ACB will re-visit the basic fundamental requirements for product compliance and certification in the primary areas of focus; the USA, Canada, Europe and Japan.
In addition, we will introduce and explain some important changes that have happened and continue to evolve in our industry at this time.
Many things have changed in our industry since our last seminars in 2015.
