    BEUC - The European Consumer Organisation (Belgium)

    Several tests done by consumer organisations have shown that connected products that land on the market come with multiple security risks and basic flaws. Besides obvious risks related to data protection and the loss of privacy, these flaws directly pose safety and security threats. Consumer organisations have provided the evidence that consumer products and services are not secure due to a legislative gap. As mentioned in the IIA of the...

    DUE TO LIMITED SPACE FULL SET OF COMMENTS IN THE ATTACHED PAPER: The problem the initiative aims to tackle here appears to be the aim to define IoT device as “internet-connected radio equipment, i.e. radio equipment intended to be (i) connected (directly or indirectly) to or (ii) controlled through the internet. “ Whilst we agree with the concept given by this definition, we are unclear if this clarification will be part of the future...

    DIGITALEUROPE submits that the adoption of a delegated regulation under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) would not be an appropriate instrument to address risks for the protection of personal data, privacy and cybersecurity. While potential risks do exist, existing legislative and regulatory instruments are at present better able to address them. As such, we support Options O and 1 identified in the inception impact assessment. Should the...

    Code Mercenaries GmbH (Germany)

    I am providing this feedback on behalf of my company Code Mercenaries GmbH which produces some wireless products. This is a cyber security issue, it should not be addressed as part of RED since this would create redundant and potentially concurrent requirements with the cyber security regulation.
