23 June 17 - Notification with regard to European Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU

Dear Value Resellers and Distributors,

With effect from 13 June 2017, the European Union's new Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, which came into force, replaces the previous directive RTTED 1999/5/EC, better known as R&TTE Directive.

It is important that you take note of the following in the RED Directive:

  • The R&TTE directive remains applicable to all products made and shipped by the manufacturer to the European Union before 13 June 2017.
  • The RED only applies to all products shipped to the European Union after 12 June 2017.
  • The RED applies to all the 28 EU member states, three European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. For all other countries, the usual national radio frequency regulations of the country shall prevail.

Addvalue is in the process of re-certifying all its affected products for RED compliance. Unfortunately, some of these products cannot be re-certified in time and we can expect some delay in the shipment of products to the European Union.

With effect from 1 July 2017, we will provide a periodic update on the RED re-certification status for all affected products with new part numbers on our website at http://www.wideye.com.sg .

Addvalue will ensure that all products shipped to the European Union after 12 June 2017 are in compliance with the RED.

For more information about how the RED Directive may affect you, please feel free to contact our Customer Care Support .

Best regards,
