Harmonized under:
  • Directive 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment and repealing Directive 1999/5/EC Text with EEA relevance

Harmonized standards:


The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for the following radio
equipment type:
- GSM mobile station.
This radio equipment type is for operation within the Digital cellular telecommunications system in the GSM 900
and/or GSM 1800 frequency bands as shown in table 1, with a channel separation of 200 kHz, utilizing constant
envelope modulation and carrying traffic channels according to the Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) principle.
Table 1: Frequency bands for GSM 900 and GSM 1800 Mobile Station system
Type TX RX
P-GSM 900 890 MHz to 915 MHz 935 MHz to 960 MHz
GSM 1800 1 710 MHz to 1 785 MHz 1 805 MHz to 1 880 MHz
E-GSM 900 880 MHz to 915 MHz 925 MHz to 960 MHz
R-GSM 900 876 MHz to 915 MHz 921 MHz to 960 MHz
ER-GSM 900 873 MHz to 915 MHz 918 MHz to 960 MHz
The present document covers the essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.9] under the
conditions identified in annex A.
The present document covers the general access requirements for terminal equipment up to and including 3GPP Rel-12.
The general access requirements, applied to the terminal equipment, are for one release only. The present document
does not cover the GPRS Class A mobiles and the ECSD mobiles.
For each test purpose and its corresponding conformance requirement, a reference is given to the test method in
ETSI TS 151 010-1 [2]. The requirements apply at the air interface, which may be stimulated to perform the tests by
additional equipment if necessary.
The measurement uncertainty is described in ETSI TS 151 010-1 [2], annex 5.
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements
under other parts of article 3 of the Radio Equipment Directive [i.9] will apply to equipment within the scope of the
present document.
NOTE 1: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.
ETSI TS 151 010-1 [2] constitutes the conformance test suite for GSM. The verification of the conformance
requirements in the present document is based on the tests described in this reference. The set of requirements in
ETSI TS 151 010-1 [2] and the set of requirements in the present document need not be identical.
Some requirements only apply to specific types of mobile station (e.g. data tests only apply to mobile stations with a
data facility, tests that only apply to GSM 900 or only to GSM 1800 or to both). The present document indicates the
specific test which should be carried out for each mobile station type.
An active accessory is covered by the present document if it modifies the terminal performance in an aspect which
affects conformance to essential requirements.
NOTE 2: Only active devices are subject to the present document. Accessories may be tested with specific
terminals, and either approved for use with those terminals only, or may possibly be approved for use
with a wider range of terminals, depending on the nature and effect of the accessory.
