Internal market: Orgalim comments on the draft delegated act for internet-connected radio equipment and wearables

Published: 10 March 2021

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Orgalim, Europe’s Technology Industries, welcomes the open and constructive discussions during the Expert Group Radio Equipment (EG-RE) meeting on February 24-25. We also welcome the opportunity provided by the European Commission to give comments and suggestions on document EG RE (09)05r01 in view of the activation of a delegated act pursuant to article 3(3) of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) (sub-articles d,e,f).

Orgalim follows these developments very closely and believes that cybersecurity protection in the EU market will benefit all stakeholders. While we believe that our views and those of the Commission are not far apart, we consider that the proposed text does not seem to fully capture our common goals. For this reason, we would like to take the opportunity to comment on the Delegated Act’s scope as well as on the proposed transitional period.
