Radio Equipment Directive – Cybersecurity Requirements
Article 3 (3) of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) specifies cybersecurity requirements for radio equipment sold within the EU. The three essential requirements are:
- 3(3)(d), to ensure network protection;
- 3(3)(e), to ensure safeguards for the protection of personal data and privacy;
- 3(3)(f), to ensure protection from fraud.
The new requirements took affect from February 1, 2022, but do not become mandatory until August 1, 2024; giving manufacturers a 30-month transition period. Although there are some exceptions for otherwise regulated categories of devices, the delegated act applies to most direct and indirect Internet-connected radio equipment, childcare products, toys, and personnel wearable data collection equipment.
Although harmonized standards for the cybersecurity requirements do not yet exist, many of our customers are engaging early with Intertek in preparation for these mandatory requirements. Our customers are leveraging our Cyber Assured services for 3rd party certification to existing state of the art Standards.
