With the deadline for compliance with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) coming this June 13th, 2017 manufacturers of wireless transmitters should be preparing their CE Marking conformity assessment files now to reflect the requirements in the RED.

How do you know when RED harmonized standard will be published in the Official Journal? Check the EU work programme report and see when a standard is anticipated for release and use as a published EN.

EN 300 328 Now Published in OJ

The RED version of EN 300 328 has now been published in the Official Journal for the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU. This standard covers systems in the 2.4GHz band such as Bluetooth, Zigbee, and WiFi. Manufacturers should review the standard to determine if their products remain compliant.

RED Notification Procedure

If your wireless device is placed in the European market and it has restrictions for use or if it is required to be licensed prior to use then you will need to include a “Notification” label as part of your conformity assessment. The EU has released a new notification procedure that is in the draft stage and manufacturers can now provide comments on its application before it becomes a formal requirement.

An average passenger car today relies on between 50 to 75 embedded electronic modules to monitor and control nearly all aspects of vehicle operations. To ensure safe and reliable operations of these systems, a multistep test-and-validation process is often performed as part of product development. Our FREE e-book will take you through each step.
