Eurovent invites members to its online information session on 16 January 2024 by UL Solutions that will provide expert insights into the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU cybersecurity requirements, with HVAC application cases.
The European Commission’s (EC) Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED) establishes a regulatory framework for radio equipment, setting essential requirements for safety and health, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and radio spectrum efficiency. Article 3.3 of the Directive includes device requirements related to specific categories of radio equipment ranging from common interfaces to cybersecurity.
On 12 January 2022, the Official Journal of the European Union published Delegated Regulation 2022/30/EU, enforcing compliance requirements to RED Article 3.3(d), (e) and (f). The Regulation requires cybersecurity, personal data privacy and fraud protection for applicable wireless devices available on the EU market (see figure). It took effect on 01 February 2022, and becomes mandatory on 01 August 2025, giving device manufacturers a 42-month transition period.
This upcoming Eurovent information includes the following key topics and learning points:
- EU cybersecurity regulatory landscape
- Background information on the RED Delegated Regulation
- RED Articles 3.3(d), (e), and (f)
- HVAC application cases
- Real-life issues rising from misapplied principles
- Compliance journey
Join in, as the UL Solutions technical expert discusses the RED and its cybersecurity requirements in Article 3.3, explains new updates coming from the European Commission and how it impacts connected IoT devices, and outlines what manufacturers developing or importing connected products in the EU can do now. The individual webinar topics will be followed by a Q&A session where participants are invited to ask questions on related issues.
16 January 2024, 14:30-15:30h (Brussels Time)
