Harmonized Standards for IMT-2000

Introduction

IMT-2000 is a family of technologies for 3rd Generation mobile communications, and has been defined by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The objectives of this family concept include an assurance of global roaming and interoperability between the various technologies.

The technologies themselves are specified by the 3GPPTM and 3GPP2 partnership projects, and by ETSI.

In order for radio equipment to be marketed in Europe, it has to conform to the R&TTE Directive. This lays down requirements on safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and effective use of the radio spectrum. Compliance to these requirements can be shown by Harmonized Standards.

Requirements for safety are available from CENELEC. ETSI provides input to the CENELEC standardization process.



Our Role & Activities

ETSI has developed standards to enable equipment forming part of the IMT-2000 family to be placed in the European market under the R&TTE Directive. This work is performed under European Commission Mandate M/284, and addresses all IMT-2000 technologies that may potentially be deployed in Europe, not just those specified by ETSI and 3GPP.

The standards are developed and maintained by a joint Task Force within ETSI, known as TFES - there is one exception, EN 301 908-10, which is maintained by ETSI technical committee DECT.

TFES is open to all ETSI members. As its activities take account of the work of other standards and specification groups, participants in those groups are welcome to contribute to the work. If an interested party is unable to participate through an ETSI membership, the TFES chairman can extend an individual invitation.
