The recent publication repeals Directive 1999/5/EC as it is subject to several substantial amendments and therefore discontinued for clarity purposes.

In short, 10 points taken from Directive

  1. The transmitter must not generate harmful interference, and the emission of unwanted radio waves should be limited to a level that, the state of technological progress achieved, allows to avoid harmful interference.
  2. The receiver, when this, It must possess a level of performance that allows a regular fuznionamento and protect him from the risk of harmful interference.
  3. The receiver's reception capability is considered an important factor in ensuring the efficient use of spectrum: it must have an adequate resistance against harmful and unwanted interference signals.
  4. Interoperability between radio equipment and accessories, for particular categories or classes, It must provide a standard (battery charger) in order to reduce the accumulation of electronic waste and unnecessary costs.
  5. The protection of personal data and privacy of users of radio equipment as well as the protection of fraud, They must be improved through the development of appropriate features implemented in products.
  6. Equipment must support access to emergency services and design must include development for easy use even by disabled people.

  7. Ability to load or modify software only if the conformity of the equipment is not compromised.
  8. Registration requirement for a centralized system of radio equipment to be placed on the market to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of market surveillance and to help raise the level of compliance with this Directive. This obligation entails additional burdens on economic operators and should therefore be introduced only for the categories of radio equipment for which you have not yet achieved a high level of compliance.
  9. For manufacturers it is not provided prior notification of information on conditions of use of radio equipment using non-harmonized frequency bands.
    The system ECO Frequency Information System (EFIS) European Office of Communications (ECHO) It is available to manufacturers who can search the frequency information for all Member States and assess whether, and under what conditions, such radio equipment may be used within any Member State.
  10. For the purposes of promotion, of demonstration activities within trade, exhibitions and events it is possible to exhibit radio equipment not conforming to this Directive and can not be placed on the market provided that the exhibitors guarantee that it provided a sufficient level of information to the public.
