Obviously, that is one way to find out if your device is EMC Standard compliant. It may not be the best way to find out. Certified Testing appointments are expensive, and there is often a long wait for the appointment. Optimally, The best way to find out if your device is ready for the Final Compliance test is to prepare your device for the final Compliance test during product development at your own facility! Pre-Compliance Testing involves testing the device for EMC along the path of development and correcting potential EMC failure points during development, not after failure of the Final EMC Compliance test.

Additionally, the minimum requirements include a real time Spectrum Analyzer, Preamplifier, a calibrated Antenna and Tripod, cables, and a turntable.
