Not articles but the text of law itself:

And exerpt:
(16) The compliance of some categories of radio equipment with the
essential requirements set out in this Directive may be affected by the
inclusion of software or modification of its existing software. The
user, the radio equipment or a third party should only be able to load
software into the radio equipment where this does not compromise the
subsequent compliance of that radio equipment with the applicable
essential requirements.

Transitional provisions:
Member States shall not impede, for the aspects covered by this
Directive, the making available on the market or putting into service of
radio equipment covered by this Directive which is in conformity with
the relevant Union harmonisation legislation applicable before 13 June
2016 and which was placed on the market before 13 June 2017.
