The transition period has ended, the R&TTE Directive will no longer apply! June 13, 2017 11:12 As from today (13 June 2017), all equipment placed on the market will need to meet the requirements of the RED. The R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC is withdrawn and cancelled. The new European Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU will become mandatory from now on. Under the new RED, Notified Bodies (NBs) will issue only a NB EU-type examination Certificate, not a NB Opinion as with the R&TTE Directive.
