New Technical Regulation on Radio Equipment Comes into Force in Moldova
Decision of the Government of Moldova # 34 dated by January 30, 2019 will become effective from February 22, 2021. The Decision approves Technical Regulations “On ensuring the presence of radio equipment on the market” and terminates Decision № 1274/2007 on technical regulations approval of “Radio and telecommunication equipment and confirmation of their compliance”.
The Technical Regulation “On ensuring the presence of radio equipment on the market” contains some statements from the Directive 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council. The Regulation applies to radio equipment excluding those exclusively used for activities concerning public security, defense, national security, including the economic well-being of the State, and the activities of the State in the area of criminal law.
According to the Decision #34, it is accepted to put radio equipment marked with SM conformity mark on the market of Moldova as well as into operation according to the requirements of Law No.235/2011 on accreditation and conformity assessment activities.
Once the conformity assessment of radio equipment intended for the national market is carried out by recognized conformity assessment bodies, the manufacturer or his authorized representative that is located in Moldova can affix the SM conformity mark.
Please, note that if the product already has CE mark, SM mark cannot be put as it is forbidden to put both CE and SM mark on one product.
