1 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 1 How can ETSI help? The regulatory environment for RFID Michael Sharpe

2 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 2 Key issues for RFID Free circulation of equipment Harmonised technical requirements Interoperable protocols Harmonised spectrum allocations

3 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 3 Relevant Directives & Regulations (EU) Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (1999/5/EC) Radio Spectrum Decision 676/2002/EC

4 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 4 Directives & regulations How can ETSI help?

5 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 5 What is ETSI? European Telecommunications Standards Institute European Standards Organisation (98/34/EC) Association of Industry players… … with direct participation …manufacturers, network operators, service providers, administrations, users, industry associations…

6 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 6 Directives & regulations (equipment) Radio & Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (1999/5/EC)

7 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 7 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 » Inform member state (if using non-harmonised radio spectrum) Meet national radio interface regulations Declare conformity

8 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 8 How can ETSI help (1/3)? Harmonised Standards Harmonized Standards?? Are there any others? How do I meet essential requirements?

9 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 9 Other essential requirements Access to emergency services (3.3e) Ships using inland waterways (EC Decision 2000/637/EC) Marine distress & safety equipment (EC Decision 2000/638/EC) Marine Identification System (EC Decision 2003/213/EC) Avalanche beacons (EC Decision 2001/148/EC) None of these apply to RFID

10 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 10 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. [Article 5.1]

11 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 11 Harmonised Standards European Standards (EN) Produced under a mandate from the European Commission And adopted by Member States (98/34 committee) Identifies technical requirements to meet essential requirements of a « New Approach » Directive Identifies « Essential Radio Test Suites » (RTTE) Cited in the Official Journal of the European Union Member states required to presume conformity

12 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 12 Harmonised Standards MSG: GSM DECT: DECT TETRA: TETRA ERM/MSG TFES: IMT-2000 TM4: 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

13 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 13 Harmonised Standards 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

14 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 14 Harmonised Standards Co-ordinated by OCG Steering Committee OCG_RTTED

15 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 15 Harmonised Standards for RFID Generic Short Range Devices: EN : inductive devices & devices operating below 25 MHz EN : devices between 25 MHz & 1 GHz EN : between 1 GHz & 40 GHz Draft EN : 2W devices at UHF

16 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 16 How can ETSI help (2/3)? Harmonised Frequencies …working with CEPT How do I meet national radio interface regulations?

17 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 17 Radio Spectrum Access Recommendation or Decision on spectrum allocation Harmonised Standard ETSI CEPT National licence regimes plus interface regulations System Reference Document

18 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 18 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 System Reference Document Spectrum requirements All ETSI members may comment ERM RM co-ordinate

19 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 19 CEPT - ETSI MoU Working Groups (adopting) Project Teams (drafting) ETSI Member ETSI Liaison Officer Overall ETSI view Individual view Decision/ Rec. on spectrum ETSI CEPT

20 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 20 Example: 2W RFID working at UHF Proposed modification to annex 11 of CEPT/ECC/Rec Draft EN Harmonised Standard ETSI CEPT National licence regimes plus interface regulations TR SRDoc

21 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 21 How can ETSI help (3/3)? Inform user of national restrictions on use Inform member state 4 weeks before marketing equipment Manufacturer needs to know local frequency regulations Frequencies are managed on a national basis: CEPT Recommendations not enforceable at a European level

22 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 22 The Radio Spectrum Decision Radio Spectrum Committee 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

23 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 23 Example: short-range devices (including RFID) Radio Spectrum Committee Request (mandate) to CEPT on frequencies for generic SRD Review the current restrictions on use of SRD in member states Consider additional harmonised bands for SRD applications Propose & prioritise further harmonisation measures

24 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 24 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

25 24 May 2004Michael Sharpe, ETSI Secretariat Radio Competence Centre 25 Keeping up to date RTTE Spectrum Others… R&TTE Steering Committee Any questions?
