  The possibility that beam generated electromagnetic interference (EMI) could disrupt the operation of particle detector electronics has been of some concern since the inception of short pulse electron colliders more than 30 years ago, Some instances have been reported where this may have occurred but convincing evidence has not been available. This possibility is of concern for the ILC. We have conducted test beam studies demonstrating that electronics disruption does occur using the vertex detector electronics from the SLD detector which ran at the SLC at SLAC. We present the results of those tests and we describe the need for EMI standards, for beam and detector instrumentation, at the ILC.
