York EMC Services - A Brief History

York EMC Services (YES) is a subsidiary company of the University of York and is a leading provider of:

The company was formed in 1995 after successfully offering EMC services for many years as part of York Electronics Centre, the commercial arm of the Department of Electronics. The headquarters is located on the University campus.

The largest part of York EMC Services’ business is EMC testing and the Castleford Laboratory has been in operation since 1996. In February 2000, York EMC Services purchased the Donibristle Laboratory which was previously owned by GEC-Marconi Avionics, and we added the Bristol Laboratory, formerly Global Telecommunication Laboratories (GTL), in 2007.

In addition to testing at the three UKAS accredited laboratories, York EMC Services also specialises in on-site testing which is required for the EMC assessment of physically large equipment.

York EMC Services is a Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform appointed Notified Body for the assessment of Technical Documentation under the EMC Directive. Notified Body activities are carried out at both the York and Donibristle offices.

Through the link to the Department of Electronics, we have been running industry relevant training courses in EMC for 20 years whilst our contract consultancy and research activities date back to 1983.

Examples of the kind of problems we have solved include: examining interference issues associated with electrified railways (interference to both railway and non railway systems); looking at interference to medical devices and systems in hospitals; and controlling interference to commercial radio services such as TV, radio and mobile telecommunications. In solving these problems, we apply a variety of techniques including computational electromagnetic modelling (CEM), analytical techniques, measurements and previous experience.

Finally, our portfolio of EMC instruments contains a range of specialist EMC test equipment to assist organisations carrying out EMC testing at all levels.
