- ANSI ASC C63R (EMC) – American National Standards Institute Accredited Standards Committee C63R whose scope is the development of definitions and methods of measurement of electromagnetic noise and signal strengths (radiated and conducted), determination of levels of signal strength, levels of unwanted sources, limiting ratio of noise (and/or unwanted sources) to signals and development of methods of control of, and guidelines for influence, coupling and immunity. Where subjects dealt with overlap with those of other national committees, appropriate liaison will be established. To accomplish the above activities, C63® develops electromagnetic compatibility standards documents which via its secretariat publishes, archives and sells these standards to the
