From telephones to electrical appliances/electronics devices, from what you use to what you drive, even to what you wear, our world is becoming more connected. Now, many more products are behaving like radio equipment as the radio spectrum increasingly becomes a part of our daily life. The EU Commission thus reviewed the legislation governing radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment to effectively manage these products and devices.
The new Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU was published on April 16, 2014 to address the increasing range of products with built-in radio/communication features. On June 13, 2016, the current directive regulating radio equipment will be repealed and this new Directive will become law and all products within its scope must meet the requirements.
Existing equipment can 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 of RED.
Meeting RED requirements should be more familiar and recognized with the clearer language and more defined responsibilities, there is less room for misinterpretation of the requirements.
