Cyber security requirements for the EU market under discussion

IoT cybersecurity standards for connected products and devices are coming.

SafeShark is active in European activities to scope requirements for new cyber security standards. The new standards will demonstrate cyber security performance of consumer IoT and industrial products so that the products can be placed on the EU market. 

The roadmap for this involves European standards bodies ETSI and CEN/CENELEC agreeing the scope of a standards request from the EC, then developing the standards ready for use.  

Products compliance deadline for the new standards is currently 30 months from October this year, meaning requirements would come into force around May 2024. 

The new requirements will be part of the Radio Equipment Directive which outlines requirements for CE marking. 

SafeShark will ensure that any new standards are part of its assurance scheme.  

In the meantime assurance against current consumer IoT cyber security standard EN 303 645 will ensure that your product is prepared for these up-coming changes.
