Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Directive 2014/53/EU on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment (COM/2021/547 final) (18 page(s), in English; 3 page(s), in English)
This proposal for amendment of Directive 2014/53/EU concerns the harmonisation of the charging receptacle and charging technology for mobile phones and similar electronic devices. It also concerns the introduction of information requirements for manufacturers regarding the charging characteristics of the device, and mandates manufacturers to, at least, offer an unbundled version of their electronic devices (meaning to sell the equipment unbundled without the External Power Supply or propose both options bundled and unbundled). The scope of devices concerned include mobile phones, tablets, headphones, headsets, digital cameras, portable speakers and handheld video game consoles.
