YES’s UKAS accredited testing to include radio devices

York EMC Services (YES) has expanded its UKAS accreditation to add the testing of products containing a radio function to its portfolio. Short Range Devices (SRDs) feature amongst YES’s initial accreditation encompassing products ranging from car key fobs to security and social alarms.

The Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive, to which radio products should comply for sale in Europe is being replaced by the Radio Equipment Directive in June 2016 requiring manufacturers to declare compliance with a changed set of regulations.YES offers advice to manufacturers, importers and distributors on the Directive changes and the implications for their business.

“The technology available is constantly changing which means we need to evolve to make sure that we continue to meet the regulatory compliance needs of our customers.” said Nick Wainwright, chief executive of YES. “The drive for interconnectivity of devices means that radio functionality is becoming widespread and this investment demonstrates YES’s commitment to establishing itself as a leading provider of services in this sector.”

In addition to SRDs, YES’s accreditation also covers aspects of the testing for Wideband Transmission Systems in the 2.4GHz band and Broadband Radio Access Networks operating at 5GHz.
