Revised Interference-Causing Equipment Standard Released

The Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) of Canada released the newest edition of ICES-003 for IT equipment and digital apparatus.

ICES-003, issueΒ 7, "Information Technology Equipment (including Digital Apparatus)," replaces ICES-003, issue 6, "Information Technology Equipment (Including Digital Apparatus) β€” Limits and Methods of Measurement."

This new issue will come into force upon publication on the ISED website.

The following changes have been made:

  • Added requirements for devices with wireless power transfer functionality
  • Removed requirements that are specified in ICES-Gen and referred to ICES-Gen for all general requirements
  • Removed the alternative limits while continuing to allow either the CISPR or ANSI test methods. ICES-003 now only has one set of limits

There will be a transition period of one year (ending October 15, 2021) where compliance with issue 6 or issue 7 will be accepted.
