R&TTED to RED transition

New European Radio Requirements Could Leave You in the “RED”

Webinar Recording: April 26, 2017
Presented by Michael Derby

As the required implementation date and the end of the R&TTED to RED transition period rapidly approaches, this training addresses compliance to Directive 2014/53/EU, known as the RED. We have seen a lot of activity in harmonizing standards but it is still expected that Notified Body (NB) involvement will be needed in many cases.  This webinar reviews the requirements and timelines of the RED, the status of the harmonised or draft standards, and the requirements for using a Notified Body including the technical documentation file. Preparation for the June 2017 deadline for maintaining compliance of products on the EU and EEA market must be completed, and this training provides essential information.
