Radio Measurement / Cybersecurity

If a radio interface is integrated in your product, this product falls under the European Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED). For radio equipment, the effective and efficient use of the radio spectrum must be ensured. Our experts are active in many committees and will be happy to support you in qualifying your product, also during development. 

EU-Type Examination Certificate

We, the VDE Testing and Certification Institute, perform EU-type examinations as a notified body according to the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED). If no harmonized standards are applicable or not all variants have been fully tested according to harmonized standards, the evaluation via a type examination is mandatory. Especially for the integration of radio modules, you will find additional information on EU type examination under the download section on the right.

New: Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/30 makes an assessment of information security (Engl.: Cybersecurity) mandatory from 01.08.2024 according to Article 3, 3. (d), (e) and (f) of Directive 2014/53/EU.

Since there are no harmonized standards listed in the Official Journal of the EU yet, the use of a notified body RED is mandatory here. We can already offer you this service today. Please feel free to contact us for a first orientation meeting.

Cyber security for devices with radio interfaces

According to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/30, the range of radio equipment covered by the cyber security requirements of the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) will expand from mid-2024. Prepare your products now - the VDE Institute will support you.

The Delegated Regulation, which was published by the European Commission on January 12, 2022, supplements the Radio Equipment Directive. It specifies which radio equipment (equipment with radio interface) must meet the essential requirements of Article 3, 3, (d), (e) and (f) of the Radio Equipment Directive.
