UKAS Accredited Testing Now Includes Radio Devices

York EMC Services recently expanded its UKAS accredited testing services to include testing Radio devices to the R&TTE Directive (being replaced in June 2016 by the Radio Equipment Directive; RED).

UKAS Accredited Radio Testing

Accredited testing can be carried out against European Harmonised Standards for a range of devices including:

  • Short Range Devices (SRD);
    • Radio equipment in the frequency range 9 kHz to 25 MHz and inductive loop systems in the frequency range 9 kHz to 30 MHz
    • Radio equipment to be used in the 25 MHz to 1000 MHz frequency range with power levels ranging up to 500 mW
    • Close range inductive data communication equipment operating at  13.56 MHz
  • Wideband  transmission system in the 2.4 GHz band (radiated spurious emissions)
  • Broadband Radio Access Networks (BRAN) 5 GHz high performance RLAN (radiated spurious emissions)

We offer a wide range of Radio and Telecommunications testing and are constantly adding to our accredited radio testing portfolio; please enquire for an updated list if your equipment is outside of this scope by contacting us here.

For more information please visit our Testing webpage here or download our Radio Testing Flyer here.

Using Pre-Approved Modules

Even if your radio modules are pre-approved with a matching antenna and the primary function of your device is not a radio product, the performance of the radio modules may be affected when incorporated into your product.

Under these circumstances we would recommend at least a partial re-test of radiated spurious emissions to ensure that the combined product remains compliant.
