The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for Non-specific Short Range
Devices category equipment types.
Non specific SRDs category is defined by the EU Commission Decision 2013/752/EU [i.3] as:
"The non-specific short-range device category covers all kinds of radio devices, regardless of the application or the
purpose, which fulfil the technical conditions as specified for a given frequency band. Typical uses include telemetry,
telecommand, alarms, data transmissions in general and other applications".
The present document covers equipment intended for fixed, portable, mobile or nomadic use, including:
• stand-alone radio equipment;
• plug-in radio devices intended for use with or within a variety of host systems;
• plug-in radio devices intended for use within combined equipment.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in all or any part of the frequency bands given in table 1.
Table 1: SRDs frequency ranges
Short Range Devices frequency ranges
Transmit and receive 26,957 MHz to 27,283 MHz
Transmit and receive 40,660 MHz to 40,700 MHz
Transmit and receive 138,2 MHz to 138,45 MHz
Transmit and receive 169,4 MHz to 169,8125 MHz
Transmit and receive 433,040 MHz to 434,790 MHz
Transmit and receive 863 MHz to 876 MHz
Transmit and receive 915 MHz to 921 MHz
NOTE: It should be noted that not all frequency bands in table 1 are implemented in all European
countries. Annex B provides an overview of radio interfaces which are harmonised in the
European Union. Annex C provides an overview of national radio interfaces not harmonised in
the European Union.
It is noted that in the European Commission Decision on Short Range Devices [i.3], some harmonised frequency bands
may be subject to usage restrictions such as the exclusion of video or audio use.
Equipment transmitting voice with analog modulation are excluded from the present document.
NOTE: The relationship between the present document and essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive
2014/53/EU [i.2] is given in annex A.
