The Commission of the European Union (EU) has updated its list of harmonized standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the safety requirements of the EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (2014/35/EU, or RED).
Issued in late December 2021, Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/2273 specifically updates harmonized standards originally detailed in Annex I and Annex II of Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1956. Compliance with the requirements of applicable harmonized standards in (EU) 2019/1956 confers a presumption of conformity with RED requirements.
New harmonized standards addressed in the update cover a variety of electrical and electronic products, including laser products, adjustable speed electrical power drive systems, power electronic converter systems and equipment, luminaires, low-voltage switchgear and control gear, uninterruptable power systems (UPS), and certain other electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits.

Incorrect reference. Updated implementing decision affects Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU), not the RED (2014/53/EU).
