Scope of legislation
Article 1 section 1: The Radio Equipment Directive (RED) establishes a regulatory framework for the making available on the market and putting into service in the Union of radio equipment.

What is 'radio equipment" (see 1.6.1 of the EU RED Guide):

"Radio equipment is defined in Article 2.1(1) of the RED as 'an electrical or electronic product, which intentionally emits and/or receives radio waves for the purpose of radio communication and/or radio determination, or an electrical or electronic product which must be completed with an accessory, such as antenna, so as to intentionally emit and/or receive radio waves for the purpose of radio communication and/or radio determination;'

The term 'radio communication' is defined in Article 2.1(2) of the RED as communication by means of radio waves. The term ‘radiodetermination’ is defined in Article 2.1 (3) of the RED as the determination of the position, velocity and/or other characteristics of an object, or the obtaining of information relating to those parameters, by means of the propagation properties of radio waves. The term 'radio waves' is defined in Article 2.1 (4) of the RED as electromagnetic waves of frequencies lower than 3 000 GHz, propagated in space without artificial guide. According to Article 2.2 of the RED, the Commission may adopt implementing acts to determine whether certain categories of electrical or electronic products meet the definition of a radio product. Therefore, the examples mentioned below do not prejudice or affect a future implementing act under Article 2.2. If an implementing act is adopted, the examples will be reviewed accordingly."
