Are you ready for RE D? How to prepare for the Radio Equipment Directive
From 13 June 2017, manufacturers of radio equipment will need to ensure that their products meet the requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive (2014/53/EU). This document discusses the obligations, technical and administrative changes that must be addressed.
- Are you a manufacturer, authorised representative, importer or distributer of radio equipment?
- Do you supply equipment containing a radio device into the European Union?
If the answer to either of these questions is YES then read on: the legislative requirement for radio equipment is changing and you will need to ensure you are compliant with this new requirement.
From 13 June 2017, manufacturers of radio equipment will need to ensure that their products meet the requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive. The Directive clearly defines radio equipment and the obligations of all economic operators in the supply chain with regard to conformity. It instructs member states as to their obligations with regard to market surveillance and defines the specific criteria for notified bodies. Authorised representatives, importers and distributers must also ensure that they are compliant with the new Directive.
This document focuses on:
- the aspects within the Directive that are pertinent to manufacturers clarifying their obligations, the technical and administrative changes that they will have to address,
- the options available to them during the transition period
