Product Labeling under RED

Question: We have a small radio product that we intend to distribute in EU member states. Due to the small size of the product, there is not enough space to affix our company name, company address, and model number, but we want to be in compliance with the requirements of the RED. What options do we have?

Answer: RED Article 10.7 stipulates that “Manufacturers shall indicate on the radio equipment their name, registered trade name or registered trade mark and the postal address at which they can be contacted or, where the size or nature of radio equipment does not allow it, on its packaging, or in a document accompanying the radio equipment. The address shall indicate a single point at which the manufacturer can be contacted. The contact details shall be in a language easily understood by end-users and market surveillance authorities.” Please keep in mind that all RED-compliant products are subject to market surveillance, so all requirements should be implemented as directed.
