Delegated Regulation adopted by the European Commission on 29 October 2021 aimed at improving the cybersecurity of wireless devices available on the European Union's market.
Directive 2014/53/EU - also known as Radio Equipment Directive - relates to the harmonisation of laws across Member States on the availability on the market of radio equipment.
The delegated act aims to ensure all wireless devices are safe before being sold on the EU market. This act lays down legal requirements for cybersecurity safeguards, which manufacturers will need to take into account in the design and production of the concerned products. The measures cover wireless devices such as mobile phones, tablets and other products capable of communicating over the internet; toys and childcare equipment such as baby monitors; as well as a range of wearable equipment such as smart watches or fitness trackers.
