Attention : IEC 62106-2 has been updated in 2021; the RDS2 File Transfer protocol RFT was added.

There are two other Parts that were added in 2021 to the RDS standard. These are Part 9 (RBDS) and Part 10 (UECP).

Note that Parts 7 and 8 do not exist and are not planned either. The reason is that RBDS was initially planned as Part 7 and the UECP as Part 8, but the IEC decided not to use these Part numbers and instead use for RBDS Part 9 and for the UECP Part 10.
