I am US Citizen, and I am using top consultants when I ship the equipment.
In US if you act under advice of top consultants or lawyers and you prove that you did all in your power to comply with the law, it is not much they can do to the individual in such a case. In US they don’t care if my equipment does comply with European Electrical standard and my European consultant did advise us to split the high voltage from low voltage components to make approval easy. So I don’t see any problem here.
US will not arrest you that you want to take RED out of the country to Europe even if the equipment may not comply with all electrical approval there.
Stephen, I don’t know where are you located but the best is if you call a good import broker and you talk to him what can be done so you will not be arrested for bringing RED through the border:-)
