Belonging to Title 47 of the CFR, FCC Part 27 outlines certain requirements for organizations to meet in order to provide access to the Wireless Communications Service. Compliance Testing has worked with companies to complete their FCC certification as well as certifications and marks for markets outside the United States.
By working directly with the engineers behind a project, our team can assist at any point of development from the idea phase to production. All major markets, domestic and abroad, have RF compliance limits that may be verified at any time after the initial certification. To ensure there’s no lapse in availability of your services, every aspect of your wireless communication system must be thoroughly inspected and maintained.
The Role of Title 47 of the FCC CFR
The Wireless Communications Service, or WCS, is the focus of Title 47 within the Code of Federal Regulations, CFR. The FCC came to regulate wireless communications through the Communications Act of 1934. Though created for radio transmission, CFR 47 has been updated to include specific requirements for transmission stations operating within certain frequencies.
If a station is found to be out of FCC compliance, all wireless communications and transmissions are terminated until FCC requirements are met. FCC Part 27 testing encompasses which requirements are needed when a station is transmitting on the 2305-2320 and 2345-2360 MHz bands.
Testing for radio stations includes measuring levels of radio frequency exposure from each component and device. Each test also helps determine how stable the transmission is in order to avoid it interrupting other frequencies during operation.
FCC Part 27 Standard Testing
As with any wireless communication device, those used for transmission within the WCS require prior authorization before they can enter the consumer market. Depending on the product, the certification can last for up to 10 years before a renewal is needed.
It’s important to note that the possession, installation and maintenance of these devices does not require you to be FCC compliant. The need arises when the devices and stations are online and actively transmitting data as they now fall under FCC regulations. Each limit and regulation created by the FCC is done for the sake of public health and fair business practices as high-power radio transmission can have negative health impacts over time if not properly shielded against.
