1.
Scope
1.1
This Interference-Causing Equipment Standard sets out the technical requirements relative to
radiated noise emissions from ISM radio frequency generators.
1.2
Subject to subsections 1.2.2 and 1.2.3, Sections 3 to 7 apply to every ISM radio frequency
generator manufactured in or imported into Canada except those manufactured or imported
solely for export purposes.
1.2.1
A transition period ending December 1, 2006 is provided, within which compliance witheither
ICES-001 Issue 3 or ICES-001 Issue 4 will be accepted. After the above date, only compliance
with ICES-001 Issue 4 will be accepted.
1.2.2
Sections 3 to 7 do not apply to ISM radio frequency generators used:
(a) solely for demonstration and exhibition purposes; or
(b) as prototype units.
1.2.3
(1) Sections 3 to 7 do not apply to units or models of ISM radio frequency generators for which
the Minister has granted the manufacturer, importer or owner a special permission.
(2) The Minister may grant a special permission where:
(a) the manufacturer, importer or owner has presented a written application giving:
(i)
(ii)
the reasons for the request;
an analysis based on sound engineering principles showing that the unit or model
of ISM radio frequency generator will not pose a significant risk to
radiocommunication; and,
(iii) a guarantee of compliance with all the conditions the Minister may set in the
special permission.
(b) the Minister is satisfied that the unit or model will not pose a significant risk to
radiocommunication.
(3) The special permission is valid only if:
a) the unit bears a label, either affixed or displayed electronically, stating that it is
operating under special permission and setting out the conditions of that special
permission; and,
b) the unit complies with all conditions set out in the special permission.
(4) The Minister may revoke or amend the special permission granted under subsection (2) at
any time without prior notice.

General Information
2.1
In this Standard,
ICES-001
“ISM radio frequency generator” means any interference-causing equipment that generates
and/or uses locally radio frequency energy for industrial, scientific, medical, domestic or
similar purposes, excluding applications in the field of telecommunications, information
technology and other applications covered by other Industry Canada standards.
2.2
All other definitions are to be found in the publication referred to in Section 7.1.2.
3.
Instrumentation
Instrumentation shall be in accordance with the publication referred to in Section 7.1.1.
4.
Method of Measurement
The method of measurement shall be in accordance with the publication referred to in Section
7.1.1.
5.
Limits
5.1
The limits of radio noise set out in Section 5.2 do not apply to an ISM radio frequency
generator while it is being tested for compliance with this Standard.
5.2
The limits for radio noise emissions from an ISM radio frequency generator are as specified in
the publication referred to in Section 7.1.1.
6.
Labelling Requirements
6.1
A record of the measurement method and results shall be retained by the manufacturer or
importer for a period of at least five years and made available for examination on the request of
the Minister.
6.2
The manufacturer, importer or supplier shall meet the labelling requirements set out in this
section and in Notice 2014 – DRS1003 for electronic labelling for every unit:
(i) prior to marketing in Canada, for ISM RF Generators manufactured in Canada and
(ii) prior to importation into Canada, for imported ISM RF Generators.
Each unit of an ISM RF Generator model shall bear a label which represents the manufacturer’s
or importer’s Self-Declaration of Compliance (SDoC) to Industry Canada ICES-001. This label
shall be permanently affixed to the ISM RF Generator or displayed electronically and its text

must be clearly legible. If the dimensions of the device are too small or if it is not practical to
place the label on the ISM RF Generator and electronic labelling has not been implemented, the
label shall be, upon agreement with Industry Canada, placed in a prominent location in the user
manual supplied with the ISM RF Generator. The user manual may be in an electronic format
and must be readily available.
