2014/53/EU(1999/5/EC) New Radio Equipment Directive

Overview of 2014/53/EU New Radio Equipment Directive

The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) of the European Union (EU) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union in 2014, and it  is applicable to all electrical and electronic devices that intentionally emit and receive radio waves at frequencies below 3000 GHz.
The Radio Equipment Directive changes the EU’s Radio and old Telecommunications Terminal (R&TTE) Directive (99/5/EC), which was originally published in 1999.
The general principles of the Radio Equipment Directive are similar to  R&TTE Directive, requiring compliance with essential requirements addressing health and safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and the efficient use of the radio spectrum.
As with other EU directives, the Radio Equipment Directive links on harmonised standards for specific technical requirements, and compliance with these requirements provides a presumption of conformity with the Directive’s essential requirements.
The requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive come into effect in June 2016, and radio equipment and devices placed on the market after that date will be required to comply with its requirements and must have CE Certification accoring to the 2014/53/EU.
Manufacturers of products that are compliant with the requirements of the R&TTE Directive will have until June 2017 to meet the requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive. New or revised products which in  scope of the RED shuld be certified before sold in EU.
