This webinar provides an update and guidance on SABS EMC Scheme processes. 

An electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) certificate of conformity (CoC) is required for any non-telecommunication electronic products entering the South African market. The SABS has been providing SABS EMC CoCs since 2017, as mandated by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA).

Previously, SABS EMC CoCs were only offered to manufacturers that had products tested at SABS-affiliated laboratories (SABS A-Labs). While the SABS A-Lab program will continue, manufacturers now have the option of having their products tested at any accredited laboratory in mutual recognition with the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) for the issuance of certificates. The new option requires laboratories to follow specific guidelines for the test reports to be acceptable for the South African market.
