Radio & Telecommunications Equipment
Using Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) is part of our daily life.
In order to CE Mark and to place a radio product onto the market or put a radio product into service within the EU, manufacturers are required to demonstrate compliance with the R&TTE or Radio Equipment Directive* and other directives as appropriate.
A key element of the R&TTE and Radio Equipment Directives* is to ensure optimal use of the available radio spectrum. This is assessed by a series of radio performance tests in accordance with the harmonized ETSI standards.
A radio product typically gets assessed for technical requirements such as transmitter output power, frequency range, frequency stability, undesirable radiated and/or conducted emissions, adjacent channel power, and power density.
At York EMC, we are able to test your radio products and assess the necessary parameters in order to demonstrate compliance with the relevant harmonised ETSI standards.
We hold UKAS accreditation for testing a wide variety of radio devices. For more information click here.
In the large majority of cases, this assessment will provide you with the presumption of conformity required to issue your own Declaration of Conformity and confidently CE mark your radio product.
In addition, we are also able to test your radio products to more particular international requirements e.g. FCC and ICES, depending on your needs.
We also offer scheduled and Bespoke training courses covering the relevant Directives at various levels, including communications in the railway environment, mobile radio propagation, spectrum management issues, VSAT systems and RF & microwave circuit design.
*The R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC was replaced the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU on 13th June 2016.
FCC (Federal Communications Commission) regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in all 50 American states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.
