The task of developing standards for the control of EMC can be said to have begun in 1934 with the formation of CISPR [1]. The name CISPR is derived directly from the French, Comite International Special des Perturbations Radioelectriques, and was formed by several inter national organisations coming together to institute a joint committee to specify measurement methods and limits of radio frequency interference. Since 1950 CISPR has been a special committee under the sponsorship of the IEC (International Electrotechnical Committee) whose role is to issue international standards.
