European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is the standards body for most of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Asia. For more information: http://www.etsi.org/.

According to the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Directive, the manufacturer must issue a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) indicating device compliance with the basic requirements of applicable directives.

For ETSI certifications, all Summit certifications may be leveraged by mobile and portable device vendors as part of their self-declaration to obtain the CE mark required by members of the European Union.

Note: ETSI/CE rules differ from those of the FCC and IC in that there is no provision for a modular approval. All approvals and certifications must exist at the device, rather than the radio module, level.

In some situations, the module's current test reports may not be adequate to support a DoC for the end product:

  • Environmental extremes - The host (end) product may be marketed for a higher or different temperature range or a different voltage range than what was included in the module's original testing.
  • Antenna - The antenna gain used by the host product may be different than with module's original test reports.
  • Software - The host product may not fully incorporate some of the features present in the operating software used in the original module tests.
  • Module modifications - The integrator may have to modify the module to allow it to operate properly in the host system. If so, the integrator must have a thorough understanding of the impact the changes may have on each of the module tests.

Current versions of ETSI certifications:

  • EN 300 328  (v1.7.1)
  • EN 301 893 (v1.5.1) (a/b/g modules)
  • EN 301 489-1 (v1.8.1) (Council Directive 2004/108/EC on Electromagnetic Compatibility)
  • EN 301 489-17 (v.2.1.1) (Council Directive 2004/108/EC on Electromagnetic Compatibility)
  • EN 60950-1 (2006+A1:2010) (Council Directive 2006/95/EC on Low Voltage Equipment Safety)
  • EN 62311:2008 (Assessment of electronic and electrical equipment related to human exposure restrictions for electromagnetic fields)
  • EU 2002/95/EC (RoHS)
