IEC 62209-3 standard regulation status & trends

IEC 62209-3 standard regulation status & trends

After several years of development, the IEC 62209-3 standard process poll for publication has been positively completed in 2019 and has been strongly supported by the national committees. This process has led to the publication of the IEC 62209-3 standard as an international one on September 24th 2019, hence enabling the normative usage of latest RF Vector Measurement Based Probe Array test methodology for SAR compliance certification purposes. The New IEC 62209-3:2019 standard is available on the IEC webstore here.

Right after the publication of this international standard, Notified Bodies (NB) have started reviewing all technical evidences provided by ART-Fi and proving the full compliance of ART-MAN system with the requirement of the IEC 62209-3:2019. One of the first Notified Body accepting test reports for DUT compliance on ART-MAN system is PHOENIX TESTLAB, and their announcement is available here

The European standard is available here.

In the US, the FCC recently announced during the last TCB workshop of November 2019, that they continued the review and the assessment of the validation requirements in the aim of authorizing the use of Vector Measurement Based Probe Array System for SAR compliance testing. FCC plans to continue the development of relevant KDBs to this end, and to achieve their publications in the coming months. The FCC presentation can be consulted from the TCB Council platform here.
