The Draft Technical Regulations on Radio Equipment in line with EBA proposals and harmonized with respective EU Directive were published on 22 January 2016.

In June 2015 the State Service for Special Communications of Ukraine and Information Protection (State Service) created a Working Group on elaboration the Draft Technical Regulations. Experts of the Consumer Electronics Committee of the European Business Association (EBA Committee) joined this Working Group and were actively involved in drafting and improving the Draft Technical Regulations.

The EBA Committee advocated for maximum harmonisation of the Draft Technical Regulations with the relevant EU Directive. Many of the EBA Committee’s proposals were taken into account in the Draft Technical Regulations, in particular, relating the obligations of producers and importers, terminology, cooperation with market regulations and the form of the simplified declaration of conformity.

The EBA Committee welcomes the publication of the Draft Technical Regulations and will continue to participate in further improvements to ensure its compliance with the interests of the business community.

We would like to thank the state authorities for their constructive cooperation and all EBA members who supported and contributed to our lobbying efforts!
