If you are interested in launching a new electronic product in the United States market, you must be aware that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires certification to ensure that your product complies with its regulations. These regulations aim to reduce radio frequency interference and ensure that the product does not pose any risk to human health. As a result, getting your product FCC certified is a necessary step in the process of bringing your product to market.

The FCC certification process can take several months, depending on the complexity of your product and the laboratory’s workload. It is essential to plan ahead and allow enough time for the certification process. Below are the general processes of getting a product FCC certified:

(1) Determine the applicable FCC regulations

Before you begin the certification process, it is essential to determine the applicable FCC regulations that apply to your product. You can find this information on the FCC website or consult with a certification expert.

(2) Choose a certification laboratory

The FCC does not perform product certification directly. Instead, it authorizes third-party laboratories to perform the certification on its behalf. You must choose an accredited laboratory to test your product.

(3) Submit your product for testing

Once you have selected the laboratory, you must submit your product for testing. The laboratory will perform various tests to ensure that your product complies with the applicable FCC regulations.

(4) Prepare the test report

After the laboratory completes the testing, they will prepare a test report that outlines the results of the testing and whether your product complies with the FCC regulations. You must ensure that the test report is accurate and complete.

(5) Submit the test report to the FCC

Once you have received the test report, you must submit it to the FCC along with the appropriate application form and fees. The FCC will review the test report and issue a certification if your product complies with the regulations.

(6) Mark your product with the FCC ID

If your product receives certification, you must mark it with the FCC ID that the FCC assigns to your product. This marking indicates that your product complies with the FCC regulations.

(7) Maintain compliance

Once your product has received certification, you must continue to comply with the FCC regulations. You must also ensure that any modifications to your product meet the FCC requirements.

The FCC certification process can be complex and time-consuming. Working with a certification expert (such as GTG) can help you navigate the process and ensure that your product complies with the regulations.
