Are You Ready for EN55035? The New Standard for EU RED Directive

The new EU standard EN55035, which may replace the existing multi-media equipment applicable standards EN55020 and EN55024 and their amendments, has been included in the RED official journal on December 15, 2017.

The new EU standard EN55035 has been included in the RED official journal on December 15, 2017 for radio broadcast receiver, i.e. AM/FM/DAB radio.

What is the difference of the standard comparing with EN55020 and EN55024? Let Intertek Hong Kong quickly and accurately show you to understand EN55035.

 

EN55035 Applicable Product Range:

Multimedia equipment standards include the former EN55020 (AV) products and EN55024 (ITE) products, also include professional use multimedia products. 

 

EN55035 Detail Test Requirements:  

The EN55035 test requirements are not a simple overlay of the EN55020 and EN55024 test requirements. Here, let’s clearly understand EN55035 by comparing the requirement differences of the key test items:
