European Union

The European Union Association of Notified Bodies (EUANB) issued a , covering products modified during testing to obtain conformity。 One of the roles of a Notified Body is to verify that the products, in the state where they are presented by the applicant, satisfy the tests applied。 The conclusion can thus be only “not compliant results” if the product did not satisfy the tests。

Rhein Tech was recently advised that “Law of Ukraine No. 5312-VI” was passed on November 6, 2012 and the requirement for registration of Conformity Declarations in Ukraine is no longer in force. From this point forward, Conformity Declarations being obtained in Ukraine for R&TTE, EMC, or Safety will no longer require registration by a Conformity Assessment Body in Ukraine and can be self-declared by the manufacturer or authorized representative of the manufacturer.

On November 5, 2012, the European Commission (EC) adopted 2012/688/EU, the harmonization of 1920-1980 MHz and 2110-2170 MHz bands (‘the paired terrestrial 2 GHz band’) for terrestrial systems capable of providing electronic communications services in the European Union. Link to document:

On October 23, 2012, the European Commission published in the Official Journal of the European Union the following updated consolidated list of harmonized standards to be used for assessing compliance:

斗地主达人On October 17, 2012, the European Commission (EC) proposed to update the Radio Equipment Directive. The proposal aims to make sure all market players comply with the rules regarding the avoidance of interference, so that consumers do not have problems when opening car doors, monitoring their babies or listening to radio. The EC also proposes to clarify and simplify the Directive, to facilitate its application and to eliminate unnecessary burden ultimately increasing all stakeholders’ confidence in the regulatory framework.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will accept RTCA/DO-160 commercial aircraft equipment test reports from accredited and non-accredited labs。


Regardless of a lab’s accreditation status, the FAA and the EASA require that test reports adhere to their standards of acceptability, and that the accompanying documentation meet all of their requirements. If this is not the case, the FAA and/or the EASA will require that the sub-standard submissions be revised/augmented before any further review, which will delay approval.

Earlier in 2012, the EU's Electronic Communications Committee Working Group SE (ECC WGSE) published a notice entitled "GUIDANCE ON THE COMPLIANCE TO DFS REQUIREMENTS FOR 5 GHZ WAS/RLAN AND 5.8 GHZ BFWA." As background, the ECC WGSE was requested by several groups(R&TTE CA, R&TTE ADCO, ETSI) to address cases where administrations have faced difficulties with opinions from Notified Bodies and to submit informal guidance to the R&TTE CA and R&TTE ADCO when relevant. In response to this request, WGSE reviewed an issue recently experienced by many CEPT Administrations with regard to interference generated by equipment not compliant to the regulations. Additional background and detail from the notice is as follows:
