Equipment not having at least one conducting cable (such as mains supply, signal line or earth connection) which can couple the equipment to the disturbing RF fields is excluded. The object of IEC 61000-4-6:2008 is to establish a common reference for evaluating the functional immunity of electrical and electronic equipment when subjected to conducted disturbances induced by radio-frequency fields. The test method documented in this part of IEC 61000 describes a consistent method to assess the immunity of an equipment or system against a defined phenomenon. IEC 61000-4-6:2008 has the status of a basic EMC publication in accordance with IEC Guide 107.

This standard does not consider disturbances due to capacitive or inductive coupling in cables or other parts of the field installation. Other IEC standards dealing with conducted disturbances cover these aspects. The object of IEC 61000-4-8:2009 is to establish a common and reproducible basis for evaluating the performance of electrical and electronic equipment for household, commercial and industrial applications when subjected to magnetic fields at power frequency (continuous and short duration field). IEC 61000-4-8:2009 defines:
- recommended test levels;
- test equipment;
- test set-up;
- test procedure. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1993 and its Amendment 1 (2000). It forms a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: the scope is extended in order to cover 60 Hz. Characteristics, performance and verification of the test generator and related inductive coils are revised. Modifications are also introduced in the test set-up (GRP) and test procedure.
