Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing
IoT devices must meet applicable emission and immunity regulations for the FCC, ISED, and the EU. Products that contain radio transmitters also must comply with RF exposure criteria (SAR if the product is body worn) in order to ensure the safety of the end user and bystanders. Additionally, devices with RF transmitters or receivers must demonstrate compliance with Directive 2014/53/EU (the Radio Equipment Directive) as well as meet any EMC criteria that apply to non-radio functions of the device. Demonstrating compliance with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) ensures the efficient use of the radio spectrum which is critical to allow IoT devices to coexist without interfering with one another.
Radio Equipment Directive (RED) – Cybersecurity Requirements
With the emergence of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC, more products are interconnected and behaving like radio equipment. Concern for cybersecurity of these devices has now caused the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) to revise their scope, including Article 3.3, which addresses security of radio interfaces. The change takes effect February 1, 2022. It becomes mandatory August 1, 2024, for all new and existing products which must comply in order to achieve CE marking. Manufacturers should consider testing products to existing standards such as EN 303 645 (Consumer Products) or IEC 62443 (Industrial). As the likely basis for future harmonized standards, aligning and testing products sold in the EU market to these standards will help ensure preparedness for the future harmonized standards and the August 2024 deadline.
