Genesis 1 V 2.0.0 Rev2.3

In the beginning the equipment was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the Open Market. And the Spirit of ETSI moved upon the face of the Open Markets. And ETSI said, Let there be standards: and there were standards. And the EC saw the standards, that they were good: and the EC divided the standards from the darkness. And the EC called the standards ENs, and the darkness they called Constraints to Free Trade.

The history of the EMC Directive is one of idealism, struggle, despair, passion, success, failure and enormously long lunch breaks. The earliest origins of SI2372 are now, along with most of its fundamental principles, lost in the mists of time.

In many of the more relaxed Electronics Companies in Southern England, the METECC 'hands on' approach to EMC has supplanted the great 'Competent Body' as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions, and contains much that is apocryphal, it scores over the older, more pedestrian bodies in two important respects.
First, it is considerably cheaper; and secondly it abides by the doctrine 'Don't Panic'
(this could be inscribed in large friendly letters on the report cover if you wish).

How's this for an EMC-shielded office?
Oven-ready, anyone?
