Project Description


The FCC label or the FCC mark is a certification mark employed on electronic products manufactured or sold in the United States which certifies that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission.

FCC Part 15 guidelines outline two major types of digital devices: Class A and Class B. Generally speaking, Class A devices are intended for industrial environments, while Class B devices are intended for residential use.

FCC testing for Product Certification can be broken into two parts: General Emissions testing and Intentional Radiation testing. Virtually every electronic product needs to undergo General Emissions testing. These tests typically can be completed at a cost of $1,000 to $5,000 when performed by an accredited laboratory

Step 1: Select Radio Frequency and Design Equipment.
Step 2: Test During Development.
Step 3: Register with FCC.
Step 4: Select Test Lab.
Step 5: Compliance Test.
Step 6: Certification & Filing.

The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934. The FCC ensures that the American people have available, at reasonable costs and without discrimination, rapid, efficient, Nation- and world-wide communication services; whether by radio, television, wire, satellite, or cable.

The Federal Code Of Regulation (CFR) FCC Part 15 is a common testing standard for most electronic equipment. FCC Part 15 covers the regulations under which an intentional or unintentional (incidental) radiator that can be operated without an individual license.

Yes. All devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz band MUST pass FCC certification for an unlicensed transmitter as a part of regulation Title 47 CFR part 15. This is not limited to Bluetooth only. Wi-Fi transmitters must pass the same regulatory tests

File for renewal 30-60 days, but no more than 90 days, before your license expiration date. 47 CFR Section 97.21, provides that when your application for renewal has been received by the FCC on or before the license expiration date, your operating authority is continued until the final disposition of your application

8-12 weeks
To expedite this process, FCC have authorized several private organizations to issue certifications. By working with TCB (Telecommunications Certification Body), FCC certification can be received within 1-2 weeks
