New radio type-approval service for Global Market Access


Applus+ Laboratories now manages the international certification of radio products
Applus+ has launched a new radio type-approval service to help manufacturers achieve Global Market Access (GMA) for their wireless equipment. Our regulatory experts are on hand to help manufacturers with their radio type-approval requirements in virtually any market, consistently identifying the shortest route to compliance. We fulfil both testing and certification requirements, using our own resources and or in collaboration with our network of laboratory and certification-body partners.
A complex regulatory landscape
The regulatory landscape for radio products is fragmented and changing. The emergence of the Internet of Things and the integration of wireless technologies into electrical and electronic equipment have paved the way for new regulations for radio devices, such as the EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (RED).
Achieving radio type approval usually requires finding specialist testing and certification partners in different countries, as there are no harmonised standards or international certification programmes similar to the CB Scheme.
Applus+: your partner to achieving Global Market Access
Applus+ Laboratories is accredited to test wireless equipment according to the essential requirements of the RED Directive and is also an EU Notified Body for the certification of radio products to be marketed in the European Union. Additionally, we hold specific international recognitions and have a network of local partners to manage radio-equipment compliance for the main global markets. (USA, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, amongst others.)
