John,

 

I think the physical agents Directive is concerned with the workplace, not with 
products.

 

For assessment of RF Exposure risk/safety from products, the RED is indeed the 
correct Directive and it would be covered in Article 3.1a.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Michael.

SECOND RESPONSE

I should have mentioned that exposure standards have nothing to do with RED but 
are relevant to a different Directive:

DIRECTIVE 2013/35/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL
of 26 June 2013 
on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers 
to the risks
arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields) (20th individual 
Directive within the meaning
of Article 16(1) of Directive 89/391/EEC) and repealing Directive 2004/40/EC

Dear Members,

 

Is there any harmonized standards applicable to 13.56 MHz RFID devices?

 

The following four standards are listed in the latest published list standards 
(March 9, 2018).  It seems there is no one applicable to a 13.56 MHz RFID 
device.

 

 

EN 50360:2017 Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of wireless 
communication devices, with the basic restrictions and exposure limit values 
related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields in the frequency range from 
300 MHz to 6 GHz: devices used next to the ear

 

EN 50385:2017 Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of base station 
equipment with radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure limits (110 MHz — 
100 GHz), when placed on the market

 

EN 50401:2017 Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of base station 
equipment with radiofrequency electromagnetic field exposure limits (110 MHz — 
100 GHz), when put into service

 

EN 50566:2017 Product standard to demonstrate the compliance of wireless 
communication devices with the basic restrictions and exposure limit values 
related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields in the frequency range from 
30 MHz to 6 GHz: hand-held and body mounted devices in close proximity to the 
human body

 

Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Best regards,

Grace Lin
