4.  Technical Guidance Notes

The REDCA publishes Technical Guidance Notes (TGNs) which are related to activities carried out by RED Notified Bodies, listed on NANDO.

REDCA TGNs must be understood as giving general guidance to facilitate comprehension and practical implementation of the conformity assessment procedures of the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU. They have no legal force but are often considered to be State of the Art.

REDCA TGNs related to the RED only, will appear in this section 4.


No responsibility or liability can be accepted by the European Commission or the REDCA or any of its officers or members for the contents, specifications and/or advice referred to or contained in REDCA Technical Guidance Notes and/or any action taken as a result of information contained in REDCA Technical Guidance Notes.
