What is Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU?
The Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (R&TTE) 1999/5/EC has been in place for over 15 years now and has served the radio and telecoms world well. Over the last 15 years technology has made many advances in the wireless domain and new ways to ensure compliance was needed.
After review the new European Radio Equipment Directive (RED), 2014/53/EU was published in the Official Journal of the European Commission on May 22nd 2014 which will repeal the R&TTE Directive by June 12th 2016. After this date there is a one year period when either the R&TTE or RED Directive can be applied.
