Hi,

I am developing an electronic device that I aim to sell worldwide. I am at the point of needing to have the device tested for EMC (Electro Magnetic Conformance) to comply with CE and FCC standards. This is a very expensive process, with test labs charging around £1500/day.

Is there any financial help / tax breaks to help fund this ? I understand that the R&D tax relief scheme doesn't cover testing costs but, as compliance is a legal requirement, it's as important as any other part of the R&D process.

Any suggestions gladly welcomed.

Thanks
Dave
