    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies minimum performance requirements, methods of testing and required test results for general requirements which can be applied to those characteristics common to the following equipment: shipborne radio equipment, shipborne navigational equipment, and, for EMC only, all other bridge-mounted equipment, equipment in close proximity to receiving antennas, and equipment capable of interfering with safe navigation of the ship and with radiocommunications The contents of the corrigendum of April 2008 have been included in this copy. The corrigendum updates some of the normative references, particularly those to CISPR 16 which has been republished in multiple parts. The technical content of the revised references has not however changed and there are no changes to the text of standard.
