Just-before-test verification is needed to ensure that electromagnetic interference measurements are correctly performed. Some standards cover such specific requirements regarding test verification, this is the case of the ECSS-E-ST-20-07c for space applications. However, some drawbacks in the standard procedure have been identified, and in this work, we provide advice for improving the conducted emissions verification. For instance, we argue that the complete frequency range of the test should be evaluated during the verification of the test equipment, not just two single frequencies. Likewise, it is demonstrated how the standard verification setup introduces a significant mismatch that can compromise the accuracy of the result. Moreover, this work highlights the capabilities of novel instrumentation like high-end oscilloscopes that effectively provide convenient alternatives to improve further and simplify the measurement methodology while achieving even more accurate results if applied correctly.
