Topic: GSM Shield - does it meet the European Radio Directive? (Read 2736 times) previous topic - next topic

Can anyone tell me if the Arduino GSM shield meets the European Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive (R&TTE)?
Or whether it is CE marked?

If not, whether any of the other GSM adapters on the market that do meet the directive are compatible with the Arduino GSM shield library?

We are designing a monitoring product and hope to eventually get it CE marked. I understand that to achieve this, we will need to incorporate a GSM Module that already meets the R&TTE directive and carries a CE mark.

I think GSM shield is considered a prototyping device and/or submodule that cant work standalone, and as such does not require "CE",
However, your device will have to be certified, once it is put together as whole, not its internal components separately.

No.

Wrong, it is the final system that must be qualified, not the parts.

I have just noticed that on the Module that does all the RF stuff The Quec Tell M10 module it says CE 0700 and FCC ID XMR-16182009002
