York celebrates 20 years of EMC services

York EMC preview edit_tmb Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Southern Manufacturing exhibitor York EMC Services (YES) has been providing regulatory assurance services to industry since 1995. It was established as a wholly-owned subsidiary company of the University of York. Its remit was to provide commercial EMC services to industry, which was anticipating the EMC Directive.

CEO Nick Wainwright, joined in 1995 and observes: “In 1995 . . . the EMC Directive was not yet in force, the notion of CE Marking was still in its infancy and YES operated a tiny laboratory on the University of York campus. [Now], the third edition of the EMC Directive is on its way, CE Marking is firmly established and YES operates from three UKAS-accredited laboratories across the UK, as well as delivering its training, consultancy and test instrumentation from its head office in York. However, whilst much has changed, the core values of quality, value and service remain an essential part of our DNA and will continue to do so.”

Today, YES provides UKAS accredited testing and in-depth technical consultancy, to training and test instrumentation which can be found in EMC laboratories worldwide. All products and services are designed to enable customers to meet regulatory compliance obligations in a straightforward and cost-effective manner.

Complementary services include low voltage electrical safety, wireless communications, telecomms and assessment of electromagnetic fields (EMF).

Recently, a UKAS-accredited laboratory has been established in central Scotland and York Training Academy (YTA) has been launched to online compliance training courses internationally.
