Yes, I cited the wrong Directive. Wrong citations are quite common, due to the Commission and the SMBs citing the largely meaningless 'yyyy/nn' numbers instead of the titles of the Directives.

. The actual situation is that the Directive concerned is the Low Voltage Directive. The involvement of the RED is ONLY Article 3 1 (a), which applies the LVD without its  low-voltage limit. Nothing else of the RED is relevant.

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
