Another UK first for Element Materials Technology with MIL-STD 461G

Element Materials Technology is pleased to announce that it has become the first UKAS (ISO17025) accredited lab to officially be able to test against MIL-STD 461G in the UK.

MIL-STD 461 is the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) primary standard for the control of electromagnetic interference (EMI) characteristics of subsystems and equipment. The latest revision of the standard, MIL-STD 461G, was only recently published, having been prepared by a committee of Army, Air Force, Navy, and other DoD agencies and industry representatives.

Steve Hayes, General Manager, Element Materials Technology Warwick, explains: “Element is the natural choice of testing partner for companies who need to ensure their products qualify against differing defence test standards and other legal obligations including CE Marking and E Marking for the EU.

“We can help you gain compliance to the new EMI standard, which any new defence contacts tendered from now on are likely to need and the existing environmental qualification standard, MIL-STD 810. And it is important that manufacturers use an accredited UKAS test facility to perform this as they may otherwise be required to repeat the test again elsewhere.”

UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005, Element has the largest capacity for defence EMC and environmental testing in the UK. The company delivers an extensive range of testing and validation services required by defence manufacturers during qualification, from its nine UK testing centres.
