CE Marking Compliance

Proposed amendment of the Red Directive 2014/53/EU

This proposal for amendment of Directive 2014/53/EU concerns the harmonisation of the charging receptacle and charging technology for mobile phones and similar electronic devices. It also concerns the introduction of information requirements for manufacturers regarding the charging characteristics of the device, and mandates manufacturers to, at least, offer an unbundled version of their electronic devices (meaning to sell the equipment unbundled without the External Power Supply or propose both options bundled and unbundled). The scope of devices concerned include mobile phones, tablets, headphones, headsets, digital cameras, portable speakers and handheld video game consoles.

Note it is expected that the provision shall become mandatory in January 2024
