Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Directive

The Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Directive covers all equipment that uses the radio frequency spectrum. It also covers all terminal equipment attached to public telecommunication networks. Typical products, which are covered by the R&TTE Directive, are:

  • Radio terminals: GSM handsets.
  • Other radio equipment: GSM base stations, car-door openers and other short range radio devices.
  • Fixed network terminal equipment: normal analogue telephones, ISDN terminals, cable and PC modems.

The main objectives of the R&TTE Directive are to harmonize the radio and telecommunications industry and simplify the conformity process to reduce time to market, especially for new equipment. The manufacturer is responsible for the assessment of the conformity of a product with the requirements of the R&TTE Directive. Approval certificates from an official body after having passed tests in a legally recognized laboratory are not required.
