No-Deal Brexit Poses Severe Regulatory Challenges for RFID Suppliers in the U.K.
Since a Brexit deal appears unlikely, RFID suppliers must be prepared for the coming changes.
According to the U.K.'s Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), RFID equipment that operates between 865 and 868 MHz with power levels up to 2 watts, and in the 915 to 921 MHz band with power levels up to 4 watts, will be regulated under the "New Legislative Framework." For such products, the following procedures will apply to RFID equipment suppliers that market their products in the U.K. post-Brexit if there is no deal:
• E.U.-compliant equipment placed on the U.K. market before the United Kingdom leaves the E.U. will remain compliant after Brexit.
If a Deal Is Struck, Not Much Will Change
