|Publication Date:||1 June 2016|
The present document provides guidance on the application of harmonised standards to multi-radio and combined equipment to demonstrate conformity with article 3.1b (EMC) and article 3.2 (effective and efficient use of the radio spectrum) of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) [i.1]. In particular it:
- provides guidance for the conformity assessment of this type of equipment;
- provides guidance on how to make use of assessment(s) already performed on each constituent product of the multi-radio or combined equipment and to, whenever possible, identify the additional assessment necessary (Δ) to complete the conformity assessment procedure (CAP) of this type of equipment;
- provides guidance upon the selection of the appropriate limits and/or test conditions where different limits and/or test conditions exist in the standards applicable to each constituent product of the multi-radio or combined equipment;
- helps to avoid duplication of testing wherever possible.
The type of equipment covered by the present document is equipment consisting of the combination of two or more products where at least one of them is a radio equipment as defined in the RED [i.1]. Such type of equipment (i.e. multi-radio equipment or combined equipment) falls under the scope of the RED [i.1] as a result of this product combination.
Examples of equipment to be covered by the present document include, but are not limited to, combination of multiple radio products in one radio equipment, combination of radio and IT or electro-technical equipment, RLAN enabled domestic appliance, radio controlled heating system, radio controlled lighting system, etc.
