Ready for RED?
The new Radio Equipment Directive is coming....


Do you sell radio equipment in Europe?

The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) will be the only route for radio devices to be placed into the European Union from June 13, 2017. Prepare your compliance plan now! 

Wireless manufacturers will need to obtain CE Marking under the “RED” from that date. ALL radio equipment that is being place on the market must transition to RED, even devices that were approved under the R&TTE Directive.

To prove compliance, it is necessary to use Harmonised Standards. The challenge is that there are very few Harmonized Standards to use!

In the meantime, Washington Labs has an answer.

WLL is a Notified Body (1317) under the RED and can issue "EU Type Examination Certificates" that are necessary for compliance during the transition to a full set of Harmonised Standards.

This process involves a review of your product operation and use, analysis of existing regulatory resources, such as draft ENs, standards and industry committee activity and communication with European regulatory authorities. This process is detailed in our ISO 17020 accredited procedures and allows us to prepare the necessary technical and regulatory support to issue an EU Type Examination Certificate.

Clients who have used our services for Notified Body support realize how critical this service can be as it allows market access to the 300 million consumers in the European Union.

For a quotation, or to discuss further, please Contact Us or call +1 301 216-1500 and ask for Steve Koster or John Repella. With less than 6 months until the deadline, we advise that you prepare a plan for the new Radio Equipment Directive.
