In the past 30 years, the Electromagnetic Compatibility has established itself as one of the most important quality disciplines, supported by both national and international standards and regulations. The increasing technological development of emerging economies of Latin America and their greater participation in the global market has created the need for continued regulation of their production of electrical and electronic devices. Latin America has a significant potential for economic growth not only as a producer of raw material but also as an exporter and importer of technology and in consequence the Electromagnetic Compatibility has an important role to play. This study shows the current status of the region in terms of regulations, standards and testing facilities relating to electromagnetic compatibility, through a comparison between the four Latin American countries with the largest gross domestic product: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Venezuela. Finally, a projection was made on the potential future development of this technological area.
