Manufacturers planning to sell their wireless/RF products in the United States must ensure that their equipment won’t electromagnetically interfere with other products or cause harm to the public as enforced by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), per Title 47 of Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

Radio Frequency (RF) devices are required to be properly authorized before being marketed or imported into the United States.

Our end-to-end testing and certification solutions help you identify your product’s FCC regulatory requirements, determine if it requires approval, and evaluate it to the applicable FCC rule part(s) to help you successfully achieve market entry.
