The radio and telecommunications terminal equipment is a trade that covers a wide variety of equipment for everyday use. This sector, in Europe, is regulated by the R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC.
The field of application of the Directive covers:
the radio receivers and/or transmitters (e.g. cellular, components of alarm systems by radio, microwave detectors, remote controls and similar)
the telecommunications terminal equipment (e.g. telephones, modems, fax machines, telephone dialers)
The Directive regulates that manufacturers have the responsibility to ensure compliance with the essential requirements of their product before it is placed on the market. The person responsible for placing the product on the market (manufacturer or importer) must adopt an “harmonized” procedure provided for the assessment of conformity, which guarantees the free movement of products throughout Europe.
