Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is releasing the following document for public comment:

ICES-003 - Interference-Causing Equipment Standard for Digital Apparatus, Issue 4 (Draft)

This draft standard was prepared in response to the adoption of CISPR 22, 3rd Edition, 1997, with Canadian deviations to allow harmonization with FCC requirements. Aside from providing a choice between CISPR 22, 3rd Edition, 1997 and CSA 108.8 for compliance testing, ICES-003, Issue 4-Draft does not introduce any change in requirements from the current ICES-003, Issue 3.

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 the above standard 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.
