FCC certification is established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1934 by COMMUNICATIONACT. It is an independent agency of the US government and is directly responsible to Congress. The FCC coordinates domestic and international communications by controlling radio, television, telecommunications, satellite and cable.
FCC certification covers more than 50 states in the United States, Colombia, and the United States. To ensure the safety of radio and wire communication products related to life and property, the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology is responsible for the technical support of the committee. Responsible for equipment approval. Many radio applications, communications products and digital products require FCC approval to enter the US market. The FCC committee investigates and studies the various stages of product safety to find the best solution to the problem. At the same time, the FCC also includes radio equipment, aircraft testing, and so on.
According to the relevant part of the US Federal Communications Regulations (CFR 47), all electronic products entering the United States are required to undergo electromagnetic compatibility certification (except for products specifically specified in the relevant provisions). There are three common certification methods: Certification, DoC, Verification. The authentication methods and procedures of these three products are quite different. The authentication methods that can be selected for different products have relevant regulations in the FCC. Its certification is diminishing. For these three certifications, the FCC committee also has related requirements for each laboratory.
The United States has become China's second largest trading partner for several years, and the Sino-US trade volume has been increasing year by year. Therefore, exports to the United States cannot be underestimated. American product technology standards and rigorous import regulations can be called the first in the world. Understanding the US market access rules will help Chinese products to further open the US market.
Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-regulates the import and use of radio frequency devices, including computers, fax machines, electronic devices, radio receiving and transmitting equipment, radio-controlled toys, telephones, personal computers, and other products that may harm personal safety. If these products are to be exported to the United States, they must be tested and approved by a government authorized laboratory in accordance with FCC technical standards. The importer and customs agent are required to declare that each radio frequency device complies with the FCC standard, which is the FCC license.
FCC certified manufacturers or importers ensure that their products have undergone the necessary tests to confirm that the products meet relevant technical standards and retain test reports. The FCC has the right to require manufacturers to submit test data for equipment samples or products. Suitable devices for self-verification include commercial computers, TV and FM receivers, and industrial, scientific, and medical devices used by non-public consumers of the FCC Rule Part 18.
Declaration of conformity
The equipment responsible party (generally the manufacturer or importer) tests the product at a qualified testing agency designated by the FCC to ensure that the equipment meets the relevant technical standards and retains the test report. The FCC has the right to require the responsible party to submit samples of the equipment or products. Test data. Equipment suitable for declaration of conformity includes home computers and peripherals, civil broadcast receivers, super regenerative receivers, other receivers under FCC Rule Part 15, television interface equipment, cable system terminal equipment, and Part 18 for general consumer use Industrial research and medical equipment. The responsible party shall mark the equipment as follows:
The FCC reviews the samples (or photos) and test data submitted by the applicant, and if the requirements of the FCC rules are met, the device is authorized with an FCC ID number. Applicable equipment includes low-power transmitters such as cordless phones, remote controls for automatic doors, radio-controlled toys, and security alarm systems, devices that deliberately emit radio frequency energy in Part 15, industrial, consumer use in Part 18, Scientific research and medical equipment, automatic frequency conversion receivers and super-regenerative receivers, television interface equipment, and home computers and their peripherals. The responsible party shall mark the device with the FCC ID:
Note: If a device is suitable for two or three approved types, it shall be selected by the responsible party.
1. Declaration of Conformity: The product owner (manufacturer or importer) tests the product at a qualified testing agency designated by the FCC and makes a test report. If the product complies with the FCC standard, the product is affixed with a corresponding label. In the user manual, declare compliance with FCC standards and retain test reports for FCC requests.
2. To apply for an ID, first apply for an FRN to fill in other forms. If the applicant is applying for the FCC ID for the first time, they need to apply for a permanent Grantee Code. While waiting for the FCC to approve the Grantee Code for distribution to the applicant, the applicant should take the time to test the device. The FCC should have approved the Grantee Code when all the materials required by the FCC have been prepared and the test report has been completed. The applicant uses this Code, test report and required materials to complete FCC Form 731 and Form 159 online. After the FCC received Form 159 and the remittance, it began processing applications for certification. The average time for the FCC to process an ID application is 60 days. At the end of processing, the FCC will send the FCC ID's Original Grant to the applicant. After obtaining the certificate, the applicant can sell or export the corresponding products.
