Electromagnetic Compatibility

(hardware, testing)
(EMC) The extent to which a piece of hardware will tolerate electrical interference from other equipment, and will interfere with other equipment.

There are strict legal EMC requirements for the sale of any electrical or electronic hardware in most countries, although the actual standards differ. See, for example, EMCNet.
