New EU Radio Equipment Directive: 5 key things you need to know

2018-10-09T10:15:23+00:00

As electronics product designers we know that the compliance process in electronics product development can appear intricate and precarious, if rules or regulations are misinterpreted. Now, our community has the European Union’s new Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) to grapple with. The RED came into force on 13th June 2016, replacing the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (R&TTE Directive 1995/5/EC). With a significant bearing on how manufacturers gain a CE Mark, due to changes between the two frameworks, it’s crucial to fully understand these regulatory differences to avoid time and cost overruns. Here’s an overview of the Radio Equipment Directive – its scope, impact on product design, and what you should do next. Regulatory necessity for new Radio Equipment Directive Traditionally, almost all devices dependent on the radio frequency [...]
