Raspberry Pi UK launch delayed

/ 7 years ago

Two UK distributors are refusing to ship the groundbreaking Raspberry Pi Linux microcomputer until it gets a CE mark to prove it complies with EU regulations.

A post on the the official Raspberry Pi site explained that RS Components and element14/Premier Farnell won’t distribute the device until the mark has been awarded.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation initially disputed whether the device needed the mark, as it was not a “finished end product”. However, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has since confirmed that it does.

The Foundation duly announced that it is “working with RS Components and element14/Premier Farnell to bring Raspberry Pi into a compliant state as soon as is humanly possible.” It’s unclear exactly how long that might take.
