I'm not sure whether or not you're being serious, but I'll bite - It's got 
nothing to do with "suppressing stuff"

Excerpt the Directive "whereas"

In order to ensure that radio equipment uses the radio spectrum effectively and 
supports the efficient use of radio spectrum, radio equipment should be 
constructed so that: in the case of a transmitter, when the transmitter is 
properly installed, maintained and used for its intended purpose it generates 
radio waves emissions that do not create harmful interference, while unwanted 
radio waves emissions generated by the transmitter (e.g. in adjacent channels) 
with a potential negative impact on the goals of radio spectrum policy should 
be limited to such a level that, according to the state of the art, harmful 
interference is avoided; and, in the case of a receiver, it has a level of 
performance that allows it to operate as intended and protects it against the 
risk of harmful interference, in particular from shared or adjacent channels, 
and, in so doing, supports improvements in the efficient use of shared or 
adjacent channels.

One example, would be a TV viewer hoping that their TV might still work whilst 
they're sat 2m away accessing the internet using a 700 MHz band LTE mobile 
phone.
This problem didn't exist in the 1990's when the R&TTE directive was 
written.....

As I said, nodded through. This 'efficient use' provision is carte blanche for 
suppression of anything the government doesn't like.

Receiver Sensitivity is an Article 3.2 RF Spectrum matter and not an EMC matter.

Article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive requires:
radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum 
allocated to terrestrial/ space radio communication and orbital resources so as 
to avoid harmful interference.

Article 3.2 of the Radio Equipment Directive has an additional requirement in 
that it requires:
Radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and 
supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful 
interference.

Article 3.2 Harmonised Standards  are effective mandatory as any manufacturer 
not wishing to apply them in full must obtain a Notified Body opinion and the 
Notified Body should really consider Harmonised Standards where they have been 
published.

Charlie

The draft specifies receiver sensitivity, which is surely not an EMC matter and 
severely restricts manufacturers' freedom of design and offering of a range of 
products at different prices. It could even be challenged as a restraint of 
trade. But I expect it will be nodded through.

The other thing to add is that this is within scope of the Radio Equipment 
Directive, which must be applied from 13th June 2017, so you may wish to look 
at the receiver performance requirements in Draft ETSI EN 303 345 
V1.1.1<http://www.etsi.org/deliver/etsi_en%5C303300_303399%5C303345%5C01.01.01_20%5Cen_303345v010101a.pdf>

EN 55032 is the successor of EN 55013, but 55013 is still valid at present, so 
you could use either, But if the product will continue in production for a year 
or two at least, it would be sensible to apply 55032, and EN 55035 rather than 
EN 55020 for immunity.

Hi
Would an FM receiver used in a motorcycle helmet be subject to testing under EN 
55013 or EN 55032?
Thanks in advance for any opinions.
