Delimitation between Radio Equipment Directive and Machinery Directive
The supplementary guidance on the Low Voltage Directive/EMC/RED, chapter 2 Non-radio electrical products functioning with radio equipment states:
„The RED is applicable to the combination of the radio equipment and the non-radio product as a whole only if the radio equipment is...
- incorporated into the non-radio product; and
- permanently affixed to the non-radio product.
Hence if the radio equipment is incorporated in a fixed and permanent way in the non-radio product at the moment of its placing on the EU market (i.e. in such a way that it cannot be easily accessed and readily removed), as specified above, this product is deemed to be a single product.
