RED Guidelines Consulting

Through the advice of the China Import Agency Frisch no mistakes will happen to you when importing radio equipment from China.

RED Directive (Radio Equipment Directive) for production in China

Compliance with the RED directive for production in China

The Radio Equipment Directive (Directive 2014/53/EU, better known as the “RED Directive”) regulates the requirements for radio equipment made available on the market in the European area. In Germany, the Radio Equipment Act of 2017 corresponds to the national implementation of the RED Directive. Anyone who imports goods from China that are covered by the RED Directive is responsible for complying with it. This means that you, as a buyer of radio equipment and the like from China, must ensure that your products do not violate the RED directive.

Products covered by the RED directive include:

  • Cell phones
  • WLAN router
  • Radio receiver
  • radio-based automotive components
  • DVB-T2 antennas

The advantage for you: Products to which the RED directive applies do not have to be tested again according to the EMC directive.


Compliance with the RED directive for production in China

If you import goods from China to Germany, they must meet German standards. In the electronic field, there is the EMC Directive, the Low Voltage Directive, and the RED Directive. The requirements contained in it are intended to ensure the following:

  • Protection of health and safety
  • electromagnetic compatibility
  • Effective and efficient use of radio frequencies
  • Avoidance of radio interference


Note: An import of electronic products is only possible in compliance with the RED directive!

Agentur Frisch – Your reliable and competent full service provider in China import!

Over 5000 happy customers.


I commissioned the Agentur Frisch to have a larger piece of furniture produced in China and then to transfer it to Germany. Communication via email was smooth the whole time! Very quick and reliable answers constantly gave me the security that is essential in such an undertaking. I was helped through the bureaucratic jungle at all times and no forms were forgotten or filled out incorrectly. Very commendable!



Everything top. It doesn’t get any better than this. Consulting and implementation can not be done better. We are more than satisfied after several orders with this company and continue the cooperation.
