On the subject of 61000-3-2 (coming into force on January 1, 2001), I am being given conflicting advice
on whether our laboratory equipment must comply.

The equipment is being tested for compliance to EMC Directive under EN 61326-1, Class A (non-domestic).
The equipment can draw approximately 100W. I am being told two things by different testing companies:

1. That under EN 61326-1, EN 61000-3-2 is required only for Class B (domestic) equipment, so complaince
to this standard is NOT required.
2. That EN 61000-3-2 stands alone under the EMC Directive, its scope includes all equipment drawing up to
16 A on a phase, so complaince IS required.

Can anyone help out andor direct me to a document where this is clearly explained?

Many thanks. I suspect I may not be the only one with this question.
