The European Commission’s (EC’s) Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU establishes a regulatory framework for radio equipment, setting essential requirements for safety and health, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio spectrum efficiency.   

The directive includes Article 3.3 as a placeholder to address device requirements related to radio-specific issues, 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 increases cybersecurity, personal data privacy and fraud protection for applicable wireless devices available in the EU market. It took effect Feb. 1, 2022, and will become mandatory Aug. 1, 2025, giving device manufacturers a 42-month transition period. The RED Delegated Act (RED DA) will impact any manufacturer producing radio equipment to be sold in the EU market.   

UL Solutions offers Internet of Things (IoT) advisory services, workshops and training designed to support our customers on every step of your journey toward RED compliance, from initial strategy and development through formal compliance and product launch.
