The Code of Practice on Electromagnetic Resilience covers risk management of electromagnetic interference (EMI) for safety-related systems.

It describes a recommended process for supporting functional safety with respect to electromagnetic disturbances over a complete system lifecycle and specifically provides a range of techniques and measures for application during the following lifecycle stages:

- Specification
- System Design
- Operational Design
- Implementation
- Verification and Validation
- Maintenance, Repair, Refurbishment, Upgrade
- Dismantling and Disposal
