European Union (EU) - RED Amendment for Common Charger

December, 2022

The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union published Directive (EU) 2022/2380 amending Directive 2014/53/EU on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment. This Directive was officially published on December 7, 2022 and introduced requirements for the Common Charger solution.

The European Commission introduced a legislative proposal in September 2021 to harmonize charging ports and fast charging technology. On October 4, 2022, the European Parliament voted in favor of harmonizing charging ports for all mobile phones, tablets, and cameras sold in the EU. By the end of 2024, these devices must be equipped with USB Type-C charging ports. In spring 2026, new laptops must also be equipped with USB Type-C charging ports. These decisions came as a part of the EU effort to reduce e-waste and provide more sustainable options for consumers. EU Member states will have 12 months to transpose the new rules, and another 12 months to apply the rules after the transposition period ends. These new rules will not apply to products placed on the market prior to the date these rules are applied.
