Certification process: benefits of the IEC 622209-3 Standard


Speaker: Richelieu QUOI, Business developer, ART-Fi

Richelieu QUOI emphased a test laboraty into a SAR certfication process and detailed the multiple benefits the new IEC 62209-3 standard delivers.


New IEC standard 62209-3 overview

Speaker: Mehdi RAMDANI, Head of Standard & regulation, ART-Fi

Mehdi Ramdani listed the compliance of the 62209-3 standard and gave answers to common questions the industry has:

  • What are the SAR Best Practices to calibrate a vector-probes array system?
  • How to handle an uncertainty budget?
  • How to manage a system validation procedure?


The use of IEC 62209-3 for a quick market access

Speaker: André Van den Bosch, Graduated Certification Engineer, PHOENIX TESTLABS

André exposed the daily management of IEC standard for a Notified Body, and the use of IEC 62209-3 for a quick market access within the certification market


Risk assessement on SAR

Speaker: Holger Bentje, Head of Radio & Telecommunications Department, PHOENIX TESTLAB

Holger presented the risks assessments on SAR on the certification market for a Test laboratoy and a Notified Body.

ANFR presentation


Speaker: Jean-Pierre Luguern, Direction de la stratégie

Jean-Pierre Lugern presented the french regulator agency’s (ANFR) missions and roadmap for 2020. The presentation exposed the SAR results trends from 2012 to 2018 at body and head, the new IEC 62209-3 standard and the latest ANSES report impact on the Agency’s roadmap.


Case study on SAR testing in a R&D Lab


Sami Gabriel, Vodafone Distinguished Engineer, R&D - Future Technologies

About the seminar

Join us for an exclusive in-depth review of SAR* assessment methodology and requirements for regulatory acceptance.

The seminar'scope will include testing approaches of various SAR systems, standards assessment protocols and preparation for certification including requirements for equipment with demands for SAR compliance. The specific focus will be on the “Best Practise” for compliance and what you can do to ensure smooth route to certification.

ART-Fi & Phoenix TestLab will discuss the fundamentals requirement for good actions to improve the accuracy and ease of your certification process for product compliance.

The areas of focus will be European CE-Mark (NB), USA FCC (TCB), Canada (FCB).
