Permitted Short Range Devices in Ireland
Launch date:09 May 2016
Modified at:18 July 2016
The Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (“R&TTE Directive”) was transposed into Irish law by Statutory Instrument (“S.I.”) 240 of 2001 entitled “European Communities (Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment) Regulations, 2001”. Regulation 5(6)(a) of S.I. 240 of 2001 transposes Article 4.1 of the R&TTE Directive and requires the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) to notify the European Commission of the regulated interfaces for the radio services in Ireland. A new European Directive: The Radio Equipment Directive (“RED”) entered into force on 12 June 2014. This will replace the R&TTE Directive, which will be repealed in effect from 13 June 2016. Any new products placed on the market on or after 12 June 2016
must be in compliance with the RED. For equipment already on the market, the transition period in which products compliant to the R&TTE Directive can be placed on
the market is until 13 June 2017. This document contains interface requirements for the operation of Short Range
Devices (SRDs) in Ireland. These requirements have been stipulated for the purpose of the efficient and effective use of the radio spectrum.
