This part of CISPR 16 specifies the requirements for calibration sites in the frequency range 5 MHz to 18 GHz used to perform antenna calibrations according to CISPR 16-1-6. It also specifies the requirements for reference test sites (REFTS) that are used for the validation of compliance test sites (COMTS) in the frequency range 30 MHz to 1 000 MHz according to CISPR 16-1-4.
It has the status of a basic EMC standard in accordance with IEC Guide 107, Electromagnetic compatibility – Guide to the drafting of electromagnetic compatibility publications.
Measurement instrumentation specifications are given in CISPR 16-1-1 1 and CISPR 16-1-4. Further information and background on uncertainties in general is given in CISPR 16-4 , which can also be helpful in establishing uncertainty estimates for the calibration processes of
antennas and site validation measurements.
