The R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC (Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive) was published on March 9, 1999. It covers all apparatuses using the radio frequency spectrum and all equipment associated with public telecommunications networks, for example mobile phones and wireless devices such as Bluetooth devices, wireless network routers and car door openers.
The directive ensures safety, protection and free movement of radio and telecommunications apparatuses in the European Economic Area. It also helps to increase access to third country markets and expand the opportunities of entering large trading blocs such as the USA and China, promote regulatory convergence between Member States and ensure that research and innovation will benefit the sector. The directive does not apply to radio equipment, kits of components to be assembled by radio amateurs, equipment covered by the 96/98/EC Directive on marine equipment, 93/65/EEC Directive on civil aviation, cabling and wiring, equipment designed to only receive sound, TV broadcasting services, and air traffic management systems.
EU Directives which may apply to radio and telecommunications equipment are the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2004/108/EC.
