Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment
(R&TTE) Directive

Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment

With the exception of a few categories of equipment, the R&TTE Directive applies to all equipment that uses the radio frequency spectrum. It also applies to all terminal equipment attached to public telecommunication networks.

Manufacturers of any product that uses radio frequencies, or is designed to interface with telecom networks, from mobile phone handsets to wireless modems to industrial control systems, needs to be aware of the requirements of the R&TTE Directive. They need to ensure that their products are compliant with the Directive and carry a valid CE Marking in order for them to be placed on the open market or into service within Europe.
