This problem is acknowledged in the Lloyd’s Register Naval Rules and obviated by a risk based electromagnetic compatibility approach. This paper points out the electromagnetic risks identified and mitigated by the technical committee that wrote the IEC 60533, and provides a risk based approach to deal with them.
Cost-effective electromagnetic compatible installation on ships using a risk based approach
The lack of equipment available on the market which is certified for maritime, or even naval, environments, i.e. in accordance with IEC 60533 , makes it hard for shipbuilders to deliver (naval) ships that comply with maritime ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulation. Following the conventional rule-based approach, i.e. implementing standards, results in a deadlock or very costly dedicated hardening of equipment.
