5 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 ALL transmitters must be ‘Authorized’ to be legally used in the US Organization of the Equipment Authorization Process

6 Three methods of authorization Part 2J Verification (2.902 and to 2.956) –Manufacturer tests to limits –Verifies compliance –Maintains records –No reporting to FCC required –This however, DOES NOT mean devices are not tested 2.955(3) states that the responsible ‘shall’ retain records of measurements including: –Name of test lab, data, description of how tested, support eq used, lengths of cables, modifications, test report signed by responsible party etc

7 Three methods of authorization Part 2J DoC (2.906 and to –Testing done 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. (2.948(a)(3), 2.948(d)&(e)) –Product labeled with FCC DOC mark per DoC logo placed on equipment and DoC provided to end user Improper use of DoC means the device is illegal. –Similar record retention as other authorization processes (2.1075) –Typically does NOT apply to intentional radiators under Part 15C

8 Three methods of authorization Part 2J Certification (2.907 and to ) Used for new equipment authorizations Is more than just a “test report” – is in actually a legal document. Requires a detailed list of “Exhibits” (b) for parts 11, 15 and (c)for licensed. Receives a grant of equipment authorization from FCC. Records retained AND provided to FCC at time of grant (2.907(a))

9 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.

10 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
