Applus+ IDIADA Contributes to Adoption of New UN Regulation on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)


    Applus+ IDIADA, as part of the Spanish Delegation, has participated in the recent 90th session of the Working Group on Lighting and Light Signalling (GRE), held in the United Nations (UN) office in Geneva from April 29th to May 3rd 2024. The session focused on the adoption of the series 07 of amendments for UN Regulation No. 10 related to EMC.

    During the meeting, the GRE received updates on the initiatives of the Informal Working Group on EMC (IWG EMC) and formally approved the draft proposal of this new series of amendments, developed by experts within the IWG EMC.

    Nieves Estrada, an expert engineer in homologation, EMC regulations, and Emergency Call Systems at Applus+ IDIADA, who has been actively involved in the IWG EMC since 2021, made significant contributions to the development and implementation of this new series of amendments.

    According to Nieves Estrada, “this new series of amendments is the result of a great deal of work by all the experts within the IWG EMC to improve and adapt it in line with the evolution of new technologies in the automotive sector.”

    Amendments to UN Regulation No. 10 related to EMC

    The key updates in this series of amendments include the following, among others:

    • The introduction of flowcharts to clarify the Rechargeable Electrical Energy Storage System (REESS) charge modes to be tested.
    • An extension of the frequency range of the electromagnetic immunity test to 6 GHz to ensure resistance against next-generation mobile services such as LTE, 5G, and Wi-Fi.
    • The definition of additional operating conditions and failure criteria for Autonomous Driving System, Accident Emergency Calling Systems and Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System.

    This new series of amendments will be voted on and adopted at the 193rd session of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29). Once approved, it will become mandatory in Europe and in all countries adhering to United Nations Agreement No. 58. The estimated effective date is January 2025.

    This development marks a significant milestone in global vehicle regulation standards.
