An overview of the revised standards
From phones to appliances, from what you drive to what you wear, our world is becoming more connected. That means more products are now behaving like radio equipment as the radio spectrum increasingly becomes a part of day-to-day life. As such, the EU Commission has had to review legislation governing radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment to effectively manage products.
On June 13, 2016 the current directive regulating radio equipment will be repealed and new requirements will come into law and all new products will need to comply with the updated directive. Until then, existing equipment can continue to be tested and certified to the current directive, remaining compliant until June 13, 2017, at which time all equipment within the scope of the directive—new and existing—must comply with the new version.
Changes under the new directive include, but are not limited to:
Meeting RED requirements should be familiar ground for most companies. With clearer language and more defined responsibilities, there is now less room for misinterpretation of the requirements. To learn more about the revised directive, download a copy of our white paper.
