Accreditation is a major under taking for an EMC lab. The basic requirements will be discussed including what documents are required, what to expect during the audit (both on an initial and the biannual reaccredidation), the current status of uncertainty, the perquisites for the AEMCLAP program, and check lists used during an audit. At the end there will be an opportunity for specific questions on areas not covered.


Dr. Fanson received his BSEE from MSU in 1963, his MS in radio astronomy from Cornell in 1965, his PhD in antennas and propagation from MSU in 1972. He worked at the Ford Motor Co. from 1965 until he retired in 1997 in various electrical groups from radio to advance electrical systems. During his leave from Ford to get his PhD, he worked at Oldsmobile in their gage group. He has been a member of the SAE EMI committee and the ISO TC 22 SC3 WG 3 since the late 1970's. Since his retirement from Ford, he has become an auditor for A2LA as part of the AEMCLAP program.
