International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 50529-1:2010
Title EMC Network Standard - Part 1: Wire-line telecommunications networks using telephone wires
Project Number 21828
Abstract/Scope This EMC standard specifies requirements for emissions originating from within wire-line telecommunication networks using telephone wires and the immunity of those networks, including their in-premises extensions by references to harmonised EMC product standards and other standards with EMC requirements in combination with good engineering practice, when installed and operated as intended. This standard covers the frequency range 9 kHz to 400 GHz. The assessment of a network needs to be performed only in the frequency ranges where limits are defined in the relevant product standards. The emission limits set in this standard do not apply to the wanted emissions from embedded radio links within the network. The requirements have been selected so as to ensure that electromagnetic disturbances generated by a network, or parts thereof, operating normally do not exceed a level above which radio and telecommunications equipment or other equipment cannot operate as intended. Fault conditions of the network are not taken into account.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
