Read my other reply above:

There is no need to test individual devices. All devices on the market are already tested to comply with existing EFI/EMI rules.

A) You are wrong, many electronic devices are NOT EMI tested before they hit the market, and many are tested poorly.


B) Who said that all electronic devices taken on the plane are even from the US? There are thousands of international flights per day... are you going to check to make sure that every single electronic device on that plane is FCC certified? Or are you going to simply say 'Shut em off.'

There is only ONE logical, simple, and effective way to deal with this... The current rule. Shut em off.
