By 12 June 2017, it has only been possible to place the majority of radio products on the European market if the product has been type approved by a Notified Body in accordance with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED). This applies to almost all radio products, including those which have been approved earlier for the R&TTED.
From 12 June 2017, all radio products in the EU must comply with the Radio Equipment Directive (RED). As there are still only a few harmonised standards, the only way of approving many radio products is currently to obtain a type approval from a Notified Body.
FORCE Certification A/S (FC) is the only Danish Notified Body for the Radio Equipment Directive (NB no. 0200).
Plan your type approval
A product’s technical documentation must be reviewed as a whole, and we can prepare checklists available for this prior to the actual certification.
An EU-Type Examination is carried out as follows:
- The manufacturer fills out a short application form for certification.
- FC supplies a detailed checklist so that the manufacturer is aware of precisely what the technical dossier must contain.
- The manufacturer uploads its technical dossier to a shared online workspace which is made available by FC.
- FCreviews the dossier and provides feedback should any documentation be missing.
- The manufacturer amends the documentation and notifies FC when it is all ready.
- FC performs a final review. Should it prove necessary, any further iterations are agreed upon.
- Should test reports be missing for the current versions of appropriate standards, FC’s related test laboratories can carry out the relevant tests.
- FC issues a type approval certificate.
