Radio Equipment Directive (RED) for Two Way Radio Equipment

Radio Equipment Directive (RED) for Two Way Radio Equipment

Effective from 13th June 2017, the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU replaced the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (RTTE) Directive 1999/5/EC and this will have a huge impact on everyone involved in supplying the radios to you. Compared to the RTTE Directive, the new RED directive brings with it significant changes to its scope and to the technical requirements for manufacturers wishing to place radio products and active components/accessories on the market.

The RED approval process has been introduced to provide better accountability and regulation, ensuring that anything sold into the marketplace meets the highest standards. It also states that all relevant conformity documentation will be required at every stage in the supply chain. For some time, Icom has been ensuring that its radio equipment meets this new directive and all new products on the market comply. Be confident that your supplier is supplying you with legally compliant radio equipment.
