Compliance with the new EU Radio Equipment Directive required from 13 June

The R&TTE Directive can no longer be used to access the European market as EU's new Radio Equipment Directive has become mandatory 13 June. This major update for radio equipment was published in May 2014.

1999 Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) directive which set essential parameters for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) were safety requirements for such devices in Europe until now. This old R&TTE 1999/5/UE Directive will be replaced with technologies developing.


Compare with the old directive the most important changes of the new directive is that Telecommunication Terminal Equipment (TTE) is now outside the scope of the RED and covered by the EMC and Low Voltage Directives. In addition, operators must be able to identify who supplied them with the radio equipment and to whom they supplied it. Plus, Declaration of Conformity had also get various changes.


As to let users and market surveillance authorities can easily understand the new RED also requires that contact details and instructions be supplied in a clear target language.


Public security and defense, radio amateur equipment that is not placed on the market, and marine and airborne equipment are exclusions from this directive. Currently, very few products comply with the new RED. If a manufacturer brings a CE marked product to market after June 2017, they will have to update their Declaration of Conformity (DoC) according to the RED.
