CE marking of ultrasonic flaw detector

In order to sell a product within the EEC, equipment manufacturers have to CE mark the product. When it comes to UT flaw detectors and P/R, Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive apply.

CE marking is not just a sticker on a product: a certificate of conformity with a reference to the EN standards that were followed to test the product should be made available by the manufacturer.

When asking several equipment manufacturers, we have had no success in getting a response to the simple following question: "Which standard did you follow to test the EM emission and immunity of your product?". This information, that should be stated on the certificate of conformity of the product, seems to be often missing.

Does that mean that a lot of UT flaw detectors, pulser-receiver and other electronic sold in europe are not tested for EMC and as such do not comply With EEC regulations ?

Re: CE marking of ultrasonic flaw detector
I obviously can't speak for other companies, but in the case of the Epoch series flaw detectors and the other Panametrics-NDT instruments from Olympus NDT, full CE documentation is available from our sales department on request. In the case of the Epoch XT, our most recent model, we comply with EN61326(1997) +A1(1998)+A2(2002)Class A(Emissions), Annex A, Table 2 (Continuously Monitored).

Re: CE marking of ultrasonic flaw detector
At Magnetic Analysis Corporation, on our 2B certificates we state that SS-EN
61000-6-4 is followed for emission standard, and SS-EN 61000-6-2 is followed for
immunity standard. We also have our electrical equipment tested at a national
laboratory in Sweden to get them approved for EMC.
