World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help? The regulatory environment in the European Union
World Class Standards SEM What do I have to do to meet European Telecommunications regulations?
World Class Standards SEM Directives & regulations (equipment) Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (1999/5/EC) EMC Directive 2004/108/EC (updates 89/336/EEC) Radio Spectrum Decision 676/2002/EC
World Class Standards SEM Directives & regulations(networks and services) Framework Directive (2002/21/EC) Authorisation Directive (2002/20/EC) Privacy Directive (2002/58/EC) Universal Service Directive (2002/22/EC) Regulation (2000/2887) Unbundled access to the local loop Access Directive (2002/19/EC) Amended by Directives 2009/136/EC and 2009/140/EC
World Class Standards SEM Directives & regulations (safety) « Physical Agents Directive » protects workers (2008/46/EC) (amends 2004/40/EC) Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC) (codification of 73/23/EEC) Council Recommendation on limitation of EM Field exposure of General Public (1999/519/EC)
World Class Standards SEM Electronic Fee Collection Directives & regulations (sector-specific) Automotive EMC Directive (2004/104/EC) Marine Equipment Directive (96/98/EC) Medical Devices Single European Sky: Interoperability Regulation (552/2004) …and many more.
World Class Standards SEM Directives & regulations Talk to ETSI! Who can help?
World Class Standards SEM26-01 … working by consensus 8 Recognised European Standards Organisation (98/34/EC) … with direct participation… Association of stakeholders… …manufacturers, network operators, service providers, administrations, users, industry associations … What is ETSI?
World Class Standards SEM Directives & regulations (equipment) Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (1999/5/EC) (under revision) New Legislative Framework Essential requirements Harmonized Standards Notified Bodies CE Marking
World Class Standards SEM What does a manufacturer need to do? Meet the essential requirements health & safety electromagnetic compatibility avoidance of harmful interference (radio equipment only) possibly others, if invoked by the Commission Carry out « essential radio test suites » Declare conformity Inform member state (if using non-harmonised radio spectrum) Meet national radio interface regulations
World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help (1/3)? Harmonised Standards Harmonized Standards? Are there any others? How do I meet essential requirements?
World Class Standards SEM Other essential requirements Access to emergency services (3.3e) Ships using inland waterways (EC Decision 2000/637/EC) Marine distress & safety equipment (EC Decision 2004/71/EC) Marine Identification System (EC Decision 2005/53/EC) Avalanche beacons (EC Decision 2001/148/EC) COSPAS-SARSAT locator beacons (EC Decision 2005/631/EC) Automatic Identification System (AIS) (EC Decision 2005/53/EC)
World Class Standards SEM Harmonised Standards Where apparatus meets the relevant harmonised standards or parts thereof whose reference numbers have been published in the Official Journal of the European Communities, Member States shall presume compliance with those of the essential requirements referred to in Article 3 as are covered by the said harmonised standards or parts thereof. [RTTED: Article 5.1]
World Class Standards SEM Harmonised Standards European Standards (EN) Produced under a mandate from the European Commission And adopted by Member States (98/34 committee) Implement essential requirements of a « New Approach » Directive (e.g. R&TTE, EMC) Adopted by National Standards Organisations Cited in the Official Journal of the European Union Member states required to presume conformity
World Class Standards SEM Harmonised Standards Mandate M/284 (& specific mandates) Identify technical requirements necessary to meet regulatory objective (essential requirements) Identify « essential radio test suites » necessary before placing on the market Only the part of the standard relevant to the Directive is cited in the OJEU
World Class Standards SEM Some Harmonised Standards... MSG: GSM DECT: DECT TETRA: TETRA ERM/MSG TFES: IMT-2000 ATTM: Fixed Radio Links SES: Satellite Earth Stations ERM: Land-mobile radio, Amateur Radio, Citizens Band, RFID (ERM TG34) ERM: 2,45 GHz RLAN BRAN: HIPERACCESS, 5 GHz RLAN
World Class Standards SEM ERM: Marine radio, Short-range devices (ERM TG28), Paging, Cordless telephones, Radar, Medical Implants, Road Transport & Traffic Telematics ERM: Electromagnetic Compatibility, Meteorological Aids, Avalanche Beacons, Ultra Wide Band (ERM TG31a), Broadcast transmitters, professional audio/video Some more Harmonized Standards
World Class Standards SEM Co-ordinated in ETSI by OCG Steering Committee OCG_RTTED Commission refers regulatory issues to TCAM ETSI is a permanent observer in TCAM
World Class Standards SEM But …??!! How can Administrations be sure that standards protect the spectrum adequately? Technical requirements are set by consensus of Administrations and Industry, in co-operation with CEPT What to do with non-compliant equipment? Effective market-surveillance is key Members States shall take steps to remove non-compliant equipment from the market But what is theres a mistake in the standard? Revisions can be initiated quickly Safeguards can be invoked in worst cases
World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help (2/3)? …working with CEPT How do I meet national radio interface regulations? Harmonised Frequencies
World Class Standards SEM Obtaining spectrum in Europe Creation of SRDoc Creation of candidate HS Creation of Decision / Recommendation Creation of EC Decision ECC RSCom National frequency allocations National licensing regimes Citation in Official Journal of the EC Spectrum allocation with legal certainty Harmonized Standard System Reference Document (SRDoc) Candidate Harmonized Standard ECC Decision/ Recommendation EC Decision World Radio Conference (WRC) Global spectrum allocation Spectrum requirement From ETSI members, EC etc ETSI Liaison Officer ETSI Representative
World Class Standards SEM CEPT - ETSI MoU Working Groups (decide) Project Teams (draft) ETSI Member ETSI Liaison Officer Overall ETSI view Individual view Decision on spectrum CEPT ETSI input (System Reference Document)
World Class Standards SEM Basic description of application Simple technical description Current ETSI standards Justified spectrum requirements Possible compatibility issues Market forecasts Traffic evaluation Economic/social benefit Market window Requested action from CEPT Guide EG System Reference Document Spectrum: How do we get an ETSI input?
World Class Standards SEM SRDoc to CEPT System Reference Document Spectrum: How do we get an ETSI view? Affected ETSI TBs Is there consensus? Have all interested parties been consulted? Resolution by members of affected TBs TC ERM
World Class Standards SEM Example: 2W RFID working at UHF Modification to annex 11 of CEPT/ECC/Rec EN Harmonised Standard National licence regimes plus interface regulations ETSI CEPT SRDoc TR
World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help (3/3)? Harmonised Frequencies …working with the European Commission… Frequency allocations are National My market is global! …Radio Spectrum Decision 676/2002/EC What about legal certainty?
World Class Standards SEM The problem… … and inform user of national restrictions on use …and inform each member state 4 weeks before marketing equipment… I need to know all National frequency regulations… Frequencies are managed on a national basis: CEPT Recommendations not enforceable in European law
World Class Standards SEM Radio Spectrum Decision Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG) Member states advise EC on spectrum requirements to support EU policy initiatives European Parliament, CEPT and ETSI are permanent observers
World Class Standards SEM Current RSPG Opinions The current Opinions of the Radio Spectrum Policy Group can be found at:
World Class Standards SEM The Radio Spectrum Decision Radio Spectrum Committee (RSCOM) European Commission requests CEPT to provide frequency allocations in support of EU policies CEPT output codified into a Commission Decision Legal certainty ! CEPT and ETSI are permanent observers
World Class Standards SEM Example: 5 GHz Radio LAN Radio Spectrum Committee Request (mandate) to CEPT on frequencies for Radio LAN CEPT/ECC Decision (04)08 in use of 5 GHz band for Radio LAN ETSI Harmonized Standard EN (BRAN) Commission Decision 2005/513/EC Legal certainty for placing on the market and use
World Class Standards SEM Current Commission Decisions The current Commission Decisions regarding radio spectrum can be found at:
World Class Standards SEM The Radio Spectrum Decision International Negotiations World Radio Conference (WRC) CEPT continue to establish European Common Positions Commission to communicate with Parliament & Council for political support Aim for global harmonisation where possible
World Class Standards SEM Harmonised Standards and Commission Spectrum Decisions Commission Decision Harmonised Standard Spectrum allocation with legal certainty ETSI EC 34
World Class Standards SEM26-01 Electronic Communications Framework (Amended by Directives 2009/136/EC and 2009/140/EC*) 35 Directives & regulations (networks and services) Framework Directive (2002/21/EC) Authorisation Directive (2002/20/EC) Access Directive (2002/19/EC) Universal Service Directive (2002/22/EC) Privacy Directive (2002/58/EC) Regulation (2887/2000) Unbundled access to the local loop * Regulation (1211/2009) Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications
World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help? Framework Directive? ETSI asked to propose revision to list (mandate M/358) List of Standards (article 17) as the basis for voluntary harmonisation SR (OCG ECNS)
World Class Standards SEM How can ETSI help? Framework Directive? Commission Decisions (article 17) « encourage » harmonisation based on listed standards …may be made compulsory for interoperability (article 17) or access (Access Dir. Art 5.2)
World Class Standards SEM Standards mostly completed How can ETSI help? Standards for interoperability of iDTV (article 18) ETSI requested to produce work programme Interactive digital TV? TR (EBU/CENELEC/ETSI JTC Broadcast)
World Class Standards SEM How can I contribute? Membership of ETSI is open to any organisation with an interest in telecommunications (European or not) Harmonised Standards produced by Technical Committees of experts drawn from members Funded Specialist Task Forces to accelerate critical work Public Approval Process managed by National Standards Organisations
World Class Standards SEM Keeping up to date Any questions? RSPG: TCAM: RSCOM:
