If you are manufacturing 2.4GHz wireless-enabled products for markets in the European Union, then now is the time to confirm the version of standard EN 300 328 listed in your existing compliance reports. EN 300 328 is the European harmonized standard for 2.4GHz Wideband Transmission Systems and includes technologies such as WiFi, Zigbee, and Bluetooth. This standard is often updated to account for changes in technology and test practices.
Starting August 6, 2021, only EN 300 328 Version 2.2.2 (2019-07) will provide a presumption of conformity with the Radio Equipment Directive.
If you currently have a report that cites an earlier version of the standard (earlier than V2.2.2) then it’s likely you will require testing to bring your product compliance reports up to date. Elite can perform a “Gap Review Analysis” of your existing reports and confirm which selected test may need to be performed. In most cases, legacy EN 300 328 reports will only require new results for the Receiver Blocking test requirement in order to be current with Version 2.2.2.
Check the existing reports in your technical file and your compliance details or contact Elite to review your reports.
