Materials handling equipment often incorporates radio devices that are necessary for its functioning. As a result, this equipment may be covered by the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (“RED”). This Directive is thus potentially relevant to all FEM product categories, with the exception of racking and shelving when it only consists of a metallic structure.
This FEM Guidance aims at providing further clarity about the provisions of the RED, notably regarding the obligations and practical steps to be taken by materials handling manufacturers to ensure compliance with the Directive.
