Radio Equipment Directive (RED, 2014/53/EU) is one of the directives published by European Union regulating the compliance of radio equipments. For CE marking of radio equipments, RED is one of the essential directives. RED ensures a single market for radio equipment by setting essential requirements for:
- safety and health,
- electromagnetic compatibility,
- the efficient use of the radio spectrum
In addition to these three items, technical features for the protection of privacy, personal data and against fraud, interoperability, access to emergency services, and compliance regarding the combination of radio equipment and software are also regulated with RED (Radio Equipment Directive, 2014/53/EU).
Each country applying CE marking regulations have local authorities for market surveillance. They are regulating the market and giving penalties for unsafe products in the market.
