NEW – Applied Measurement Uncertainty for EMC Testing Laboratories

During this workshop, the participant will be introduced to several tools and techniques that can be applied in the EMC testing laboratory environment for conducted and radiated emissions to efficiently and effectively create measurement uncertainty budgets which conform with ISO/IEC 17025, IEC 61000 series and CISPR requirements. The tools presented are specific to this measurement discipline.



•    Completion of A2LA Introduction to Measurement Uncertainty course (EMU 101), or other basic university/collegiate statistical coursework
•    Working experience in an EMC testing laboratory
•    Proficiency in Microsoft Excel or equivalent
•    College-level mathematics is encouraged


The participant will need to bring a laptop computer with Microsoft Excel or similar spreadsheet installed.


Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

1.    Discuss the concepts within the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty of Measurement (The GUM);
2.    Apply measurement uncertainty evaluations using IEC CISPR 16-4-2, LAB 34 and other references
3.    List and define the contributors for EMC testing laboratory measurement uncertainty estimates;
4.    Determine how contributors are considered for inclusion in the uncertainty budget; and
5.    Build a basic EMC Measurement Uncertainty Budget.
