European Harmonization

Introduction

ETSI is responsible for the preparation of Harmonised Standards under the European Commissions Radio Equipment Directive (RED). These Harmonised Standards enable providers of equipment and services to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Directive, and thus be able to sell, deploy and operate them within the European Union.

Our Role & Activities

Current activity includes Harmonised Standards covering Earth Stations on Vessels and Trains (ESV/EST) operating in Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) frequency bands.

Other Harmonised Standards previously prepared include:

  • Ku band Aeronautical Satellite Earth Stations (AES-Ku )
  • VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) Ku band
  • Satellite Interactive Terminals (SIT)/Satellite User Terminals (SUT) (Ka band emission)
  • Satellite component of IMT 2000
  • Mobile Earth Stations (MESs) of Geostationary mobile satellite systems, including handheld earth stations, for Satellite Personal Communications Networks (S-PCN)
  • Mobile Earth Stations (MES) providing Low Bit Rate Data Communications (LBRDC) using Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites
  • Land Mobile satellite Earth Stations (LMES) and Maritime Mobile satellite Earth Stations (MMES)
  • Low data rate Mobile satellite Earth Stations (MESs) except aeronautical mobile satellite earth stations
  • Satellite News Gathering Transportable Earth Stations (SNG TES).

Standards

The following is a list of the 20 latest published ETSI standards related to European Harmonization.

A full list of related standards in the public domain is accessible via the ETSI standards search (also check this query result in the standards search where "Harmonized Standard" was still written with "z" in the title of the standard). Via this interface you can also subscribe for alerts on updates of ETSI standards.

For work in progress see the ETSI Work Programme on the Portal.
