The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is implementing a new set of compliance standards for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz products in order to address and clarify test methods and limits. Mandatory for market access in Europe, the ETSI EN 300 328 v1.9.1 will take effect December 1, 2016 and ETSI EN 301 893 v1.8.1 will take effect January 1, 2017.

Laird carries a full line of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi modules that are compliant with the current ETSI standard EN 300 328. Laird seeks CE (Europe) approval for all wireless modules to significantly decrease the burden on OEM developers. Updated test reports and Declaration of Conformity will be available upon request.

Because the most significant changes to the standards involve the test methods, new data must be taken to confirm compliance with the new revisions of the standards.
