GEN – 919.00. On 5 June 2018, the European Commission has released the RED guide to help with the common application of the Directive. The guide, like Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), has no weight in law but deals with many practical issues that are of interest to manufacturers and stakeholders. A separate note was released on “Non-radio electrical products functioning with radio equipment” and “Radio or electrical equipment with non-electrical products” in relation to the Electromagnetic Compatibility and Low Voltage.
The European Commission is releasing for most of its Directives guides or FAQs to improve the interpretation of its Directives and Regulations. In general, these result from discussions with stakeholders and are generally used as input for the revision of the Directives and Regulations. These documents are legally non-binding but do provide useful information.
The information can generally be found on the respective Commission websites.
Manufacturers are recommended to check at regular intervals the Commission websites that deal with their products. As more products are being equipped with communication devices, the RED must be considered.
The link related to CE-marking provides a rapid access to all product-related directives.
