The delegated act to the Radio Equipment Directive adopted today aims to make sure that all wireless devices are safe before being sold on the EU market.

This act lays down new legal requirements for cybersecurity safeguards, which manufacturers will have to take into account in the design and production of the concerned products.

It also aims to protect citizens’ privacy and personal data, to prevent the risks of monetary fraud as well as to ensure better resilience of communication networks.
