TCAM : Telecommunication Conformity Assessment and Market Surveillance Committee

TCAM is the standing Committee assisting the European Commission in the management of Directives 1999/5/EC and 2014/53/EU. This Committee was set-up to facilitate the exchange of documents between Member States and the Commission. TCAM was constituted by Article 13 of R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC (Directive on radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment and the mutual recognition of their conformity) to assist the Commission. 

Task  :

Under the R&TTE Directive (1999/5/EC) and RED (2014/53/EU) , TCAM acts as both an advisory (Article 14) and a regulatory committee (Article 15) in matters of conformity assessment and market surveillance. 

Composition :

The committee is chaired by a Commission representative. Each EU member state is represented by the public authorities in charge of the implementation of the R&TTE Directive and RED. Input may also be provided by representatives of the EFTA states, national experts and experts from European organisations (eg CEPT, ETSI, LPRA etc…). Particular regulatory issues are restricted to the representatives of the public authorities and the Commission, however.

Meetings :

Approximately 3–4 times a year (not open to the public)

Documents :

TCAM documents are available to authorised users via the Commission's CIRCA server.
