The Radio Equipment Directive is coming in June 2016 – will you be ready?
Dr. Michael Sharpe, Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI
About this talk
From 13 June 2016, European Union Member States will apply new rules for placing radio equipment on the European market and putting them into service. The new Radio Equipment Directive will apply to much more equipment than its predecessor: anything which used radio for communications will need to meet these new requirements to be placed on the market in the EU. This webinar will explain how industry can access the EU market using ETSI “Harmonised Standards”, and how the standards provide a technical base line for National authorities to ensure a level playing field in Europe.
Dr. Michael Sharpe is the Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI. He is responsible for ensuring effective co-operation of ETSI’s technical activities with the work of key regulatory bodies and partner standards bodies at the National, European and Global level. His current priorities include working with the European Commission to ensure the smooth introduction of the Radio Equipment Directive, and the continuing close co-operation with CEPT and the Commission Radio Spectrum Unit to ensure that ETSI Harmonised Standards and Regulations on radio frequency use are developed in a co-ordinated and effective manner.
