In an Administrative Circular issued in 2005 (AC/23/2005) to all national committees and TC/SC officers, the IEC SMB (Standardization Management Board) reminded technical committees and subcommittees to follow IEC Guide 107 when drafting EMC publications and/or including EMC requirements in product standards.


Please note the current version: IEC Guide 107: 2014 (Edition 4).


In October 2009, (the same year as the third edition of Guide 107 was published), when confirming that IEC Guides contain mandatory and non-mandatory texts, the SMB stated that IEC Guides 104, 107 and 108 are mandatory containing requirements that shall be met. This was fully implemented in the 2014 edition of Guide 107.


IEC Guide 104, The preparation of safety publications and the use of basic safety publications and group safety publications, and IEC Guide 108, Guidelines for ensuring the coherency of IEC publications - Application of horizontal standards, can also be accessed through the Members & Experts section of the IEC website, under Reference material/Guides.
