The RED Directive (Radio Equipment Directive) 2014/53/EU, which replaced the R&TTE Directive, has been applicable since 13 June 2016 to regulate radio apparatus with a view to applying the CE mark.

ECO Certificazioni offers conformity assessment activities for radio products and telecommunications apparatus pursuant to the RED Directive, through a vast range of tests: from tests on electric safety and human exposure to electromagnetic fields, to electromagnetic compatibility tests (EMC) and verification of the radio spectrum.
