SAMSUNG Electronics Establishes EMC Lab in the UK

Korea, May 30, 1997:Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
recently opened an electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
and quality assurance laboratory (QA-Lab) in the Yateley
district, near London. In 1995 Samsung decided to build
the W6 billion facility in order to improve the company`s
capability to design and manufacture products that
satisfy a wide range of consumer demands and meet the CE
(Community of Europe) Mark directives for the EU market.
The CE
Mark is a set of harmonized standards which covers a wide
range of items, including electric and electronic goods
for all European Union member countries. Thus, the CE
Mark is a standard required of all manufacturers when
exporting products to Europe.
The new
laboratory is equipped with the latest in measuring
electromagnetic emissions, product immunity to radiation,
dark rooms, an outdoor testing facility and systems for
various product evaluations. It will be mostly used
extensively for basic research in order to improve
product quality within the design stage.
Back in
December 1992, Samsung Electronics opened a similar
laboratory in Germany, but the site was decided to be
re-established in the UK. Such a decision was reached
under the intentions of creating maximum synergy effect
with the company's electronics complex at Wynyard,
England, as well as the other local R&D and marketing
operations already established in the UK.
Electronics Co. Ltd., a US$19 billion flagship company of
Korean-based Samsung Group, is a world leader in
electronics, with operations in more than 60 countries.
The company develops, manufactures, and markets consumer
electronics, industrial electronics and semiconductors.
