Introduction to R&TTE Directive

This course covers almost all electronic equipment that includes within it a radio transmitter, and also items of telecommunication terminal equipment.

The R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC applies to a very large and increasing number of products that affect our everyday lives. For all products within its scope the R&TTE Directive replaces both the EMC and the Low Voltage Directives. Compliance with the Directive is a legal requirement and there are penalties for both companies and individuals in breach of the regulations.

Safety, EMC and efficient use of the radio spectrum are covered, providing designers and manufacturers with key information about the legal obligations and compliance issues involved.

This course is available on request as a standard or bespoke course either at York EMC Services' premises or In-house, where numbers suffice. Please contact us or e-mail training@yorkemc.co.uk for more information.

The new RED came into force on 13th June 2016 with a one year transition period.
