Notice No. SMSE-020-01 — Interference-causing Equipment Standard (ICES)
Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is releasing the following document:
ICES-006:Interference-Causing Equipment Standard for AC Wire Carrier Current Devices (Unintentional Radiators), Issue 1
This standard is a new initiative by Industry Canada. The purpose of ICES-006 is to impose limits on radio frequency emissions from AC wire carrier current devices of a design for which any radiation of RF energy is unintentional. The requirements set out in ICES-006 are harmonized with those for AC wire carrier current devices of intentional radiator type set out in Industry Canada Standard RSS-210.
As an Interference-Causing Equipment Standard, ICES-006 will be given effect by the Radiocommunication Regulations, under which it is to be designated as a Category II Equipment Standard.
In accordance with Section 20 of the Radiocommunication Regulations, the Category II Equipment Standards List is published in the Canada Gazette Part I and provides a list of all technical standards applicable to interference-causing equipment. The effective date of ICES-006, Issue 1 will be the publication date of the amended list which will include this standard. Compliance with a listed standard is required in accordance with the Radiocommunication Regulations.
Inquiries concerning ICES-006, Issue 1 should be addressed to: Manager, Radio Equipment Standards, Telephone: 613-990-4699, E-mail: Res.Nmr@ic.gc.ca.
