European decision support universal charging solutions for mobiles

Geneva, 17 October 2013 – Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) have embraced an opportunity to mandate the use of universal charging solutions for mobile phones.

An amendment to the Radio Equipment Directive of the European Parliament will require radio equipment – and in particular, mobile phones – to be compatible with a universal charger. The decision builds on the European Commission’s 2009 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with fourteen major device manufacturers which sealed a commitment to common standards for smartphones.
