Radio Equipment Directive: How do ETSI’s Harmonised Standards assist?
Dr. Michael Sharpe, Director of Spectrum and Equipment Regulation at ETSI
About this talk
Since 13 June 2016, European Union Member States applied new rules for placing radio equipment on the European market and putting them into service. From 13 June this year, all radio equipment being placed on the market or put into service must comply with the new Radio Equipment Directive (RED), 2014/53/EU. ETSI’s Harmonised Standards are often the preferred method of demonstrating compliance with European radio regulations. This webinar will explain how industry can access the EU market using ETSI Harmonised Standards, provide an update on the status of availability of ETSI’s Harmonised Standards, and indicate alternative paths in the cases where Harmonised Standards are not yet available.
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.
