Consumer Goods and Retail Radio Equipment Directive (RED)
To manufacture or sell radio equipment for use in Europe it must comply with RED 2014/53/EU. With a few exceptions it applies to all equipment that uses the radio frequency spectrum.
The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) harmonises the market and improves the process of bringing products to market. Removing national standards, the directive now requires manufacturers to demonstrate that a product meets the directive’s Essential Requirements. At SGS we have the expertise and testing facilities to help you demonstrate your product’s compliance and carry the appropriate CE mark.

- Product safety: EN 62368-1, EN 60950-1
- EMC: EN 301 489-x, EN 61000-3-2, EN 61000-3-3
