    Tait's Approach to Regulatory Compliance

    Tait ensures its products meet regulatory compliance in the markets in which they are offered. Radio equipment needs to comply with mandated radio performance standards to ensure efficient use of the radio spectrum, which is in great demand worldwide.

    Regulatory compliance requirements vary widely between regulators, with several dimensions for any given product.New digital emissions are bringing a significant increase in compliance complexity. Also, standards are revised from time to time, requiring specific supplier action to maintain compliance.

    Tait products generally hold a wide range of Type Approvals to national regulatory standards worldwide. Tait has a dedicated team and comprehensive compliance database to manage this complex and demanding aspect of providing high-quality radio communications equipment on a global scale.

    What are EC Declarations of Conformity?

    The OFCOM (UK) Guidance for Manufacturers on the Introduction of the Radio Equipment Directive states the following:

    Manufacturer's Responsibility

    It is important to be aware that the responsibility for ensuring that the requirements of the Directive are met lies with the manufacturer, or in the case of equipment manufactured outside the EU, the company or persons within the EU that have placed the equipment on the EU market. Where a company is marketing a product manufactured outside the EU and has no involvement in importation, it is the responsibility of the wholesaler/importer to ensure that the requirements of the Directive are met.

    It is also the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure that the equipment being marketed has the CE marking affixed and has adequate information and instructions containing the equipments intended use, a Declaration of Conformity and, for radio equipment, details of countries the where product is to be marketed. In the case of telecommunications terminal equipment, information should be provided identifying the interfaces of the public telecommunications networks to which the equipment is intended to be connected.
