What would be the use of immortality to a person who cannot use well a half an hour? - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Product Consulting, Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment directive
  1. What is Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment directive?
    This CE marking directive was introduced in 1999, replacing the interim directive 98/13/EC, which in turn consolidated the requirements of the Telecommunications Terminal Equipment and Satellite Earth Station Equipment Directives. This has led to a conformity assessment regime based on manufacturers' declarations, rather than independent tests. The new Directive came fully into force in April 2000 and now covers all radio communication equipment, apart from certain specific exclusions.

    It is important to note that equipment within the scope of this Directive must meet the essential requirements of both the Low Voltage Directive and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive. The Directive also requires equipment to be constructed for efficient use of the radio spectrum, and to avoid interference with terrestrial and orbital communications. Additional requirements are made for certain classes of equipment
