Updates to the European Radio Equipment Directive
February 12, 2015 - Webinar
The goals of the new directive include improving the level of compliance with the "essential requirements", increasing the confidence of all stakeholders in the regulatory framework and clarifying the Directive in order to facilitate its application.
Changes to the R&TTE Directive (1999/5/EC) include alignment with the NLF and other aspects identified as necessary to ensure the compliance and quality of radio equipment. Central to these new requirements are new accreditation requirements, clarification and changes to the roles of Notified Bodies, new requirements for test labs and manufacturers and the issuance of certificates.
