Notice No. SMSE-005-04 - Interference-Causing Equipment Standard (ICES)

Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is releasing the following document: ICES-003 - Interference-Causing Equipment Standard for Digital Apparatus, Issue 4.

This standard was prepared in response to the adoption of CISPR 22, 3rd Edition, 1997, with Canadian deviations by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). A draft version of ICES-003, Issue 4 had been released for public comment on June 6, 2003. During the public comment period, it was recommended by the Canadian Standards Association that CSA Standard C108.8 should be dropped from being referenced in ICES-003 as one of two alternative standards setting out radio noise limits and test methods. As a result, this final published version of ICES-003 Issue 4 will refer only to CAN/CSA-CEI/IEC CISPR 22: 02. No further comments were received resulting from the public consultation.

The effective date of the above standard will be the publication date of this Gazette Notice.

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 Category II Equipment Standards List will be amended to reflect the above change.

The ICES-003 Issue 4 document is available at the following Internet WWW addresses: for the English version

and for the French version.
