ETSI and the Electronic Communications Committee (ECC) have jointly published a brochure which provides an introduction to the regulatory environment in Europe for radio equipment and spectrum including useful information for newcomers.

The brochure explains the regulatory system and the mechanisms and cooperation in place between the European Commission (EC), the ECC, and ETSI. It also addresses the Radio Spectrum Regulatory Framework within the European Union and CEPT. Newcomers will find practical guidance on how to place equipment on the European market and how to provide a new service which uses radio spectrum.
