As is generally known, there is as yet no listing of the radio EMC standards in the European Official Journal for the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU. These are contained in the series (ETSI) EN 301 489-X.
This is due to various reasons. The last delay was due to the lack of HAS consultants to perform the technical evaluation of the standards. Now there is again a contract between the EU and the organization that provides the HAS consultants. But other reasons, such as the insufficient testing of receiver characteristics under EMC conditions and that no wording may be included in which the manufacturer determines test criteria, prompted the revision of various standards in this series.
The lack of clarity desired for new innovative products prevented the listing of the generic radio EMC standard (ETSI) EN 301 489-1, to which all product standards in this series refer.
At the beginning of September 2022, the ETSI EN 301 489-19 V2.2.1 (2022-09) standard has now been published in its final version by ETSI. This standard deals with the mobile receivers of satellites (ROMES) and the receivers of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). These systems receive satellite signals in the 1.5 GHz frequency range. GNSS is the collective term for the various satellite navigation systems such as GPS (USA), GALILEO (Europe), BeiDou (China) and GLONASS (Russia), ... . For this standard there is now a reasonable hope for listing in the EU Official Journal, because it has already been agreed with the HAS consultants. If and when this will happen, the future will show.
But even independently of the listing, affected manufacturers should now urgently deal with this standard, because it corresponds to the described state of the art. The previous version dates from 2019.
Furthermore, there are these draft standards from ETSI, which are certainly worth more than one look:
- Draft (ETSI) EN 301 489-17 V3.2.5 (2022-08) for WLAN, Bluetooth, ZigBee, ...
- Draft (ETSI) EN 301 489-3 V2.3.0 (2022-07) for all SRD devices
