In the United States, electronic devices that can emit radio frequency (RF) energy are required to comply with all Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations for electromagnetic compatibility, including FCC Part 15.

FCC Part 15 sets limits on radiated emissions, conducted emissions and immunity for devices that use the radio frequency spectrum. It’s designed to ensure that consumer and commercial devices do not interfere with radio-based communications systems.

In order to comply with FCC Part 15 and enter the United States market, your electronic device needs to complete FCC testing and receive FCC certification.

FCC Certification is Required for RF Devices

FCC Part 15 applies to all electronic devices that can emit radio frequency waves. This includes intentional radiators that use RF for communications, such as smart devices, Bluetooth devices, or Wi-Fi technology.

It also includes unintentional radiators — devices that are not designed to use radio frequencies for communication, but do so as an unintentional byproduct of their circuit board layout or other design factors. 

Electronic devices marketed in the United States are required to receive authorization from the FCC via FCC certification or a Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC).

Failing to complete the certification and equipment authorization process can potentially lead to legal action against your business, including FCC fines. Furthermore, many US retailers require an FCC ID for all electronic devices subject to FCC Part 15 regulations. 

What Devices Need FCC Testing & Certification?

All devices that can emit radio frequencies, including consumer electronics and equipment for business and industry, are subject to FCC Part 15 and require FCC certification.

Device types that require FCC certification include: 

  • Smartphones and other mobile devices
  • Cordless phones, remotes and control devices
  • TVs, Hi-Fi systems and other home entertainment equipment
  • Dishwashers, microwaves and other home appliances
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Internet of Things (IoT) devices
  • Electronic musical instruments and recording devices
  • Computers, printers, keyboards and other peripherals
  • Security cameras and other home security systems
  • Commercial and industrial electronic devices and equipment
  • Other consumer electronics

We can review your product’s manuals and design documentation and provide you with more information on the type of testing required and the projected costs and timeframe. 

Contact Us About FCC Testing & Certification
