Radio Product CE Certification
CE certification means that a product meets the requirements defined in applicable EC directives. A radio product has to fulfill Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, RoHS 2011/65/EU and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) Directive 2012/19/EU.
RED covers electromagnetic compatibility, efficient use of radio spectrum, safety and health aspects. If Radio is part of a machine or bigger installations, other directives may also be applicable.
Likewise, if radio is part of a medical or an automotive product, it must comply to relevant directives set for medical or automotive products.
CE Marking for a Radio Device:
The simplest and easiest way to show you product compliance to RED is through testing.
EMC and RF tests are used to show that a product complies to electromagnetic and efficient use of radio spectrum requirements.
Needed EMC and RF tests depend very much on the product (supported radios and their frequency bands, power supply, connectors etc.)
Using pre-certified radio modules reduces RF tests significantly.
A radio product must also undergo Radio Exposure Evaluation. In case of low power devices like Bluetooth,
an evaluation is enough. Products having radios transmitting higher than 20mW and used closer to human or animal tissue by less than 20cm, must be SAR tested.
