The EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (RED) was introduced in 2016 to establish manufacturing standards for radio products relating to their health and safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and efficient use of the radio spectrum. Manufacturers and distributors of radio equipment who wish to sell to the EU’s 500 million consumers must prove their compliance by affixing a RED CE mark to their products.
Radio equipment covers a growing array of products, from broadcast radios and television receivers to garage door openers and residential monitoring systems. To legally sell these products in the EU and European Economic Area (EEA), manufacturers and distributors must ensure their product displays a CE mark. Failure to do so may result in fines, products being banned and recall.
