Harmonised Standards for the RED and EMC Directives

We produced harmonised standards for:

  • the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) - 2014/53/EU (previously R&TTE Directive - 1999/5/EC)
    • The R&TTED was repealed on 13 June 2016. However, manufacturers who were compliant with the existing legislation (R&TTED or EMCD) can presume conformity with the RED until 13 June 2017. For more information please refer to our RED page.
  • the EMC Directive - 2014/30/EU

By adhering to these harmonised standards, manufacturers and service providers can demonstrate that they have followed the essential requirements of the directive and are able to claim ‘presumption of conformity’. This allows them to put their products and services on the market in Europe.

Harmonised standards take effect when they are cited in the Official Journal of the European Union (EU).
