  5. Organization of the Equipment Authorization Process • Historical by nature • FCC enacted by Congress so rules are hard to change. • Written originally for Licensed transmitters • Provide the very first “pre-standards” rules for authorization of radio transmitters • Has been expanded several times as technology changes

  6. Three methods of authorization • Verification • Manufacturer tests to limits • Maintins records • Verifies compliance • No reporting to FCC required • DoC • Testing done only by accredited and FCC recognized test lab • Lab must be accredited and must be either in the US of in a country with an active MRA with the US • DoC logo placed on equipment and DoC provided to end user

  7. Certification Process • Used for new equipment authorizations • Is more than just a “test report” – is in actually a legal document • Requires a detailed list of “Exhibits” See 2.1033 for complete details. • Receives a grant of equipment authorization from FCC. • Certification

  8. Certification Process • Purpose of the grant • To define the capability and ratings of a transmitter for the FCC and other equipment users • To show the equipment is “Acceptable for Licensing” and what that use is • If the grant isn’t correct or clear then there may be issues getting user/site license when attempts to operate the device are done. • To signify that the device has been properly tested and may be marketed in the US • Compliance report should clearly state all modes of operation, which modes were tested and which were worst case.

  9. Certification Process • Uses of the grant • FCC licensing bureaus use the grant information to issue licenses to equipment users/stations • Incorrect information on the grant can lead to significant problems obtaining a license • The public regularly checks the details of a grant before purchasing a product • US Customs reviews grant information when products are imported into the United States • Many other countries will allow products to be imported based on the FCC approval and information on the grant
