The European Commission’s (EC) Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) establishes a regulatory framework for radio equipment, setting essential requirements for safety and health, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio spectrum efficiency. Article 3.3 of the directive includes device requirements related to specific categories of radio equipment ranging from common interfaces to cybersecurity.   

On Jan. 12, 2022, the Official Journal of the European Union published delegated regulation 2022/30/EU, enforcing compliance requirements to RED Article 3.3(d), (e) and (f). The regulation requires cybersecurity, personal data privacy and fraud protection for applicable wireless devices available on the EU market (see figure). It takes effect Feb. 1, 2022, and becomes mandatory Aug. 1, 2025, giving device manufacturers a 42-month transition period.   

Listen as our technical experts discuss the RED and its cybersecurity requirements in Article 3.3, explain new updates coming from the European Commission and how it impacts connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and what manufacturers developing or importing connected products in the EU can do now.
