1. Scope

This section defines the scope of this standard, including both the general scope as well as special considerations for specific equipment types.

1.1 General

This Interference-Causing Equipment Standard (ICES) sets out the limits and methods of measurement of radio frequency emissions, as well as administrative requirements for:

  • vehicles propelled by an internal combustion engine, electrical means or both;
  • boats of up to 15 m in length, which are propelled by an internal combustion engine, electrical means or both, including outboard boat engines that are marketed independently (i.e. not factory-installed on a boat); and
  • devices equipped with internal combustion engines or traction batteries.

Note that some devices with traction batteries might be subject to CISPR 14-1 and not to CISPR 12 (e.g. lawn mower or snow blower). However, CISPR 14-1 has not been adopted by ISED as a regulatory requirement in Canada. As such, for marketing in Canada, all devices equipped with traction batteries remain within the scope of ICES-002, as specified above.

For definitions of the terms used above, see section 3.2.

1.2 Vehicles, boats and devices with wireless power transfer functionality

Products subject to this standard that include functionality for wireless power transfer shall meet the provisions and requirements of both this standard and RSS-216, Wireless Power Transfer Devices. In particular, while the product is in its primary (main) operating mode, ICES-002 shall apply, and while in wireless power transfer mode (e.g. battery charging mode), RSS-216 shall apply. A reference to the corresponding RSS-216 report within the ICES-002 report will fulfil this requirement for the purpose of this document.

1.3 Vehicles, boats and devices that incorporate wireless modules

Products subject to this standard that include functionality for radio communication shall meet the provisions and requirements of both this standard and relevant Radio Standard Specifications (RSSs), as applicable to the specific radiocommunication technology. A reference to the corresponding RSS report within the ICES-002 report will fulfil this requirement for the purpose of this document.

However, where the radio functionality is achieved by integrating an already certified radio module, there is no need for a reference to the corresponding RSS report. Instead, the ICES-002 report shall demonstrate the product’s compliance with the requirements applicable to the host of an already certified radio module, in accordance with Radio Standards Procedure RSP-100, Certification of Radio Apparatus and Broadcasting Equipment, and RSS-Gen, General Requirements for Compliance of Radio Apparatus. These include compliance with RSS-102, Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure Compliance of Radiocommunication Apparatus (All Frequency Bands), for RF exposure, and specific labelling requirements for the host product.

1.4 Power supplies and converters for vehicles, boats or devices subject to ICES-002

Switched mode power supplies and semiconductor power converters intended for charging or powering electric or hybrid vehicles, boats or devices from the ac mains power supply, where the vehicle, boat or device is subject to ICES-002, shall comply with the requirements in this standard. However, if such a power supply or power converter is already in compliance with ICES-001, Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Equipment, then it is exempt from all requirements specified herein (in ICES-002).

1.5 Exemptions from the scope of ICES-002

This section defines the exemptions from the scope of ICES-002.

1.5.1 One-off modifications

ICES-002 does not apply to one-off modifications, such as a person installing a truck box, a winch, or a hitch on their vehicle for private/personal purposes.

1.5.2 Modifications involving components compliant with other ICES standards

ICES-002 does not apply in the case of an aftermarket modification performed on a vehicle, boat or device, which consists in the addition of a new component that is subject to and in compliance with one of the following ICES standards:

  • industrial, scientific or medical equipment that is in compliance with ICES-001;
  • digital or information technology equipment that is in compliance with ICES-003; or
  • lighting equipment that is in compliance with ICES-005.

Examples include the aftermarket installation of a new entertainment system compliant with ICES-003 (such as a CD-player) in a vehicle or boat, or the aftermarket installation of a flood light (compliant with ICES-005) on the cabin of a truck or a boat.

The exemption only applies to the new component and to its installation on the vehicle, boat or device. However, the base product (i.e. the one on which the additional component is installed) shall be compliant with ICES-002.

2. Responsible party

This section defines who is responsible for the product’s compliance with this standard.

2.1 General

As specified in ICES-Gen, General Requirements for Compliance of Interference-Causing Equipment, any person or entity involved in one of the activities listed in subsection 4(3) of the Radiocommunication Act is responsible under the Act for the product’s compliance with the applicable ISED standard. As such, for the purpose of ICES-002, the responsible party is the one involved in the manufacture, importation, distribution, lease, offering for sale, or sale of a specific model of a final product (as defined in section 3.2).

2.2 Multistage manufacturing

If a product that is subject to and is already in compliance with ICES-002 is modified, the persons or entities involved in any of the activities listed in subsection 4(3) of the Radiocommunication Act relative to the modified product are responsible, under the Act, to maintain the product’s compliance with ICES-002. This includes the person or entity who performed the modification (if located in Canada), the importer of the modified product (if the product is modified outside Canada), as well as any person or entity distributing, leasing, offering for sale or selling the modified product in Canada.

An example scenario is a flatbed truck imported in Canada: the importer, as well as all distributors, leasing agencies and vendors or dealers are responsible, under the Act, for the truck’s compliance with ICES-002. If then one company purchases such trucks and installs various accessories on them to transform them into dump trucks, cement trucks, lorries, etc., that company (as the manufacturer), as well as all distributors, leasing agencies and vendors or dealers of the modified trucks are each considered to be a responsible party for the purpose of this standard and thus are each responsible, under the Act, for the compliance of the modified products.

3. General requirements and references

This section defines the general requirements related to this standard, including the transition period, compliance with ICES-Gen, and the list of normative references.

3.1 Transition period

A transition period is provided, ending two years after the publication of this standard (i.e. in September 2022), within which compliance with either issue 6 or issue 7 of ICES-002 is accepted. A copy of issue 6 of ICES-002 may be requested by email.

After the expiry of this transition period, all products subject to this standard that continue to be manufactured, imported, distributed, leased, offered for sale, or sold in Canada shall comply with issue 7 of ICES-002.

3.2 Definitions

For the purpose of ICES-002, the definitions in CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 shall apply, except for the definitions for device, traction batteries and vehicle, which shall be modified as follows (the notes to these definitions in CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10, if not repeated herein, remain unchanged and still apply). Three new definitions, for final product, manufacturer and outboard engine (motor), are also added.

Device: machine, other than vehicle, driven by an internal combustion engine or traction battery (batteries), which is not primarily intended to carry persons or goods

Note 1: Devices include, but are not limited to, power generators, chainsaws, irrigation pumps, snow blowers, air compressors, walk-behind floor treatment machines and landscaping equipment.

Note 2: All devices equipped with combustion engine(s) are under the scope of ICES-002; this includes hybrid devices that are equipped with both combustion engine(s) and electrical motor(s). Electrical devices (i.e. devices that do not include any combustion engine) are only in the scope of ICES-002 if they are equipped with traction batteries; this means that the electrical motor powered by the traction battery is used in providing or assisting the propulsion of the device.

Final product: vehicle, boat, outboard boat engine or device that is complete, with all its components, in the same state as it is delivered to the end user

Manufacturer: person or entity to whom all of the following conditions apply:

  • is located in Canada;
  • acts as the main fabricant or system integrator for constructing the vehicle, boat, outboard boat engine or device in its final state (as subsequently delivered to the end user); and
  • places that vehicle, boat, outboard boat engine or device on the Canadian market, either directly (lease or sale to the end users) or indirectly (e.g. through distributors, dealers, leasing agencies).

Outboard engine (motor): self-contained boat propulsion/steering system, including the engine, gearbox and propeller or jet drive, all in one unit, which is installed to the outside transom (the rear part or the side of the boat hull), serving for both propulsion and steering of the boat

Traction battery (batteries): battery (batteries) used for the propulsion of electric or hybrid vehicles, boats or devices

Vehicle: machine operating on land (but not intended for airborne operation) that is intended to carry persons or goods and/or that is operated by an on-board person

3.3 ICES-Gen compliance

In addition to this standard, the requirements of ICES-Gen shall apply, except where a requirement in ICES-Gen contradicts a requirement in this standard, in which case this standard shall take precedence.

4. Technical requirements

This section defines the technical requirements.

4.1 General

Equipment subject to this standard shall comply with all the applicable requirements set forth in CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10, except if otherwise stated in this standard, and with the additional requirements specified herein.

For devices, if it is impractical to perform measurements under normal full load, the test conditions described in the first paragraph of sub-clause 5.3.3 of CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 may be replaced by the following:

For devices (see definition in section 3.2), measurements shall be made in normal operating position(s) and height(s), at 1500/2500 rpm or at full speed, including without load at idle speed. Where practical, the device under test shall be measured in three orthogonal planes.

4.2 Statistical compliance

The provisions of clauses 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6 and of Annex A of CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 shall not be applied for the purpose of demonstrating compliance with ICES-002. As per the Radiocommunication Act and the Radiocommunication Regulations, each unit of an equipment model shall comply with all the applicable requirements, including conducted (where applicable) and radiated emission limits.

4.3 Technical requirements for ac mains plug-in electrical or hybrid vehicles, boats or other devices

This section defines additional technical requirements applicable to electrical or hybrid vehicles, boats or other devices that can be plugged directly into the ac mains power network.

4.3.1 General

In addition to the requirements set forth in CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 (while in the primary mode of operation: see 4.1), electrical or hybrid vehicles, boats and other devices subject to ICES-002 that can be plugged into the ac mains power network (e.g. for charging their batteries) shall also comply with this section (4.3).

This section (4.3) only applies to vehicles, boats and other devices that directly connect to ac mains, by means of a detachable or permanently attached ac mains power cable. This includes power generators that may connect to ac mains for such purposes as monitoring the mains voltage (e.g. for deciding when to start the combustion engine for generating power). For the situation where the vehicle, boat or device connects to ac mains through another external device (e.g. power supply, converter or charger), the technical requirements applicable to that external device are set forth in section 4.4.

The selection of section 4.3 or section 4.4 shall be based on where the switching power supply circuitry is located: if on board the vehicle, boat or device, see section 4.3; if in a unit external to the vehicle, boat or device, see section 4.4.

Note: Some electrical charging technologies include an electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) box that provides signaling between the EVSE and the vehicle and might also include protection circuitry against electric shock. However, if the EVSE does not include any switching power circuitry, then this section (4.3) applies, rather than section 4.4 of this document.

4.3.2 Instrumentation, test methods and test facilities

This section defines the requirements for the measurement instrumentation, test methods and test facilities applicable to section 4.3.

4.3.2.1 General

Unless otherwise stated in this section (4.3.2), the instrumentation, test methods and test facilities used to demonstrate compliance with the emission limits defined in section 4.3.3 shall be in accordance with the requirements set forth in:

  • CAN/CSA-IEC CISPR 16-1-1:18, CISPR 16-1-2 and CISPR 16-2-1, for conducted emissions; and
  • CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 and in its normative references, as listed therein, for radiated emissions.

For all emission measurements, if the product under test does not allow adjustment of the charging current, the traction battery shall be kept charged at a level that is at least 20%, but no more than 80% of its maximum capacity for the duration of each test. Therefore, longer tests (such as radiated emission measurements) may require splitting into smaller frequency ranges and the product’s traction battery discharged after measuring one frequency range and before starting measurements in the next frequency range. If the charging current can be adjusted, it shall be set to at least 80% of its maximum value for the entire duration of the test.

4.3.2.2. Conducted emissions measurements

For conducted emission measurements:

  • the ac mains cable shall be connected to an artificial mains network (AMN); the communication wires, if any are included in the ac mains power cable/harness, shall be connected to impedance stabilisation networks (ISNs);
  • the AMN and ISNs shall comply with the applicable requirements as per CISPR 16-1-2 and CISPR 16-2-1;
  • any coaxial (“receiver”) ports on the AMN/ISN that are not used for measurement shall be equipped with 50 Ω terminations;
  • the AMN/ISN shall be placed on and electrically bonded to the metallic ground plane, with a lateral separation of 80 cm (+20 cm / -0 cm) from the projection onto the ground plane of the closest point on the vehicle/boat/device under test;
  • the power cable, from the connection point onto the vehicle/boat/device under test, shall drop towards the ground plane, but its vertical portion shall have a separation of 10 cm (+20 cm / 0 cm) from the vehicle/boat/device body; and
  • the portion of the power cable that lies onto the ground plane shall be separated from direct contact with the ground plane by means of insulating supports up to 15 cm in height and, if longer than necessary, it shall be z-folded in the middle with a width of maximum 50 cm.

Examples of arrangements are illustrated in Figure 13 and Figure 14 of IEC 61851-21-1.

4.3.2.3 Radiated emissions measurements

For radiated emission measurements, the same conditions apply as for conducted emission measurements, except that the AMN/ISNs are optional. The measurement antenna shall be placed at the measurement distance from the vehicle/boat/device under test, without considering the power cable; as such, the projections onto the ground plane of the reference point of the antenna and of the closest point on the body of the vehicle/boat/device under test shall be separated by the measurement distance, as specified in the limit definition.

4.3.3 Limits

This section defines the limits applicable to section 4.3.

4.3.3.1 Conducted emission limits

The limits for the mains terminal disturbance voltage are presented in table 1 and in table 2, for Class A and Class B equipment, respectively. The application of Class A or Class B limits to a particular product under test shall follow the conditions specified in ICES-Gen. The product under test shall comply with both the quasi-peak and the average limits.

Note: The more stringent limit applies at transition frequencies.

4.3.3.2 Radiated emission limits

The radiated emission limits specified in CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 shall be applied. See section 4.1.

4.4 Technical requirements for power supplies and converters for vehicles, boats or other devices subject to ICES-002

This section defines the technical requirements applicable to power supplies and converters intended for vehicles, boats or other devices that are subject to ICES-002.

4.4.1 Instrumentation, test methods and test facilities

Unless otherwise stated in this sub-section, the instrumentation, test methods and test facilities used to demonstrate compliance with the emission limits defined in section 4.4.2 shall be in accordance with the requirements set out in:

  • CAN/CSA-IEC CISPR 16-1-1:18, CISPR 16-1-2 and CISPR 16-2-1, for conducted emissions; and
  • CAN/CSA-IEC CISPR 16-1-1:18, CISPR 16-1-4 and CAN/CSA-IEC CISPR 16-2-3:18, for radiated emissions.

For all emission measurements, the power supply/converter under test should be loaded with an artificial load (e.g. electronic load), such that the power supply/converter is placed in a stable operating mode where it supplies a battery charging current of constant amplitude, which shall be set to at least 80% of its maximum value for the entire duration of each test.

In the case where an actual vehicle/boat/device is used for loading the power supply/converter under test, if the product under test or the load vehicle/boat/device does not allow adjustment of the charging current, the traction battery shall be kept charged at a level that is at least 20%, but no more than 80%, of its maximum capacity for the duration of each test. Therefore, longer tests (such as radiated emission measurements) may require splitting into smaller frequency ranges and the load’s traction battery discharged after measuring one frequency range and before starting measurements in the next frequency range. If the charging current can be adjusted, it shall be set to at least 80% of its maximum value for the entire duration of each test.

4.4.2 Limits

This section defines the limits applicable to section 4.4.

4.4.2.1. Conducted emission limits

The conducted emission limits specified in section 4.3.3.1 shall be applied.

4.4.2.2. Radiated emission limits

The limits for the electric field strength measured at a distance of 3 m or 10 m from the boundary of the power supply/converter under test are presented in table 3 and in table 4, for Class A and Class B equipment, respectively. The application of Class A or Class B limits to a particular product under test shall follow the conditions specified in ICES-Gen.

5. Administrative requirements

This section defines the administrative requirements related to this standard, such as reporting and labelling requirements.

5.1 Test report

The requirements specified in ICES-Gen shall apply.

Note: ICES-Gen specifies the minimum requirements for the test report contents in annex A of that document. However, only the requirements that relate to the scope of ICES-002 will apply. As such, the requirements specified in annex A of ICES-Gen related to the test site validation or measurement instrumentation uncertainty do not apply for ICES-002, since these items are not covered in the CAN/CSA-CISPR 12-10 standard. Also, for the purpose of ICES-002, the equipment under test consists of the whole vehicle, boat or device; the “serial number” of a vehicle is its vehicle identification number (VIN).

5.2 Labelling and user manual requirements

The requirements specified in ICES-Gen shall apply, except where otherwise stated herein. An example ISED compliance label, to be placed on each unit of the final product model (or in the user manual, if allowed), is given below:

CAN ICES-002 / NMB-002

However, for products subject to the limits in section 4.3 or in section 4.4, if the Class A limits were used for demonstrating compliance, the Class shall appear on the ISED compliance label, as per the requirements specified in ICES-Gen. An example ISED compliance label in this case is as follows:

CAN ICES-002(A) / NMB-002(A)

For products subject to the limits in section 4.3 or in section 4.4, if the Class B limits were used for demonstrating compliance, the inclusion or not of the Class in the ISED compliance label is at the manufacturer’s discretion.
