IEC 62742:2021 specifies minimum requirements for emission, immunity and performance criteria regarding electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of electrical and electronic equipment for ships with non-metallic hull.
NOTE Requirements for metallic hull are given by IEC 60533. This documents acts an extension of IEC 60533 to cater for EMC effects on non-metallic hull.
This document further gives guidance on how to achieve electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) on ships whose hull (surface) is made from non-metallic material and can also be useful for ships with hull comprising of a metallic hull, but with non-metallic superstructure or components.
This document assists in meeting the requirements of IMO resolution A.813(19).
It does not specify basic safety requirements such as protection against electric shock and dielectric tests for equipment. Electromagnetic effects on human beings are not the subject of this document.
