R&O FCC 17-93 Effective Date

Question: When will the FCC First Report and Order (R&O) “FCC 17-93 Amendment of Parts 0, 1, 2, 15 and 18 of the Commission’s Rules regarding Authorization of Radiofrequency Equipment” become effective?

Answer: Unless subject to approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the accepted proposed rule changes in FCC R&O 17-93 will become effective upon publication in the Federal Register, and will have associated transition periods.

Not all of the proposals in the 2015 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) are being implemented at this time。 A brief summary of the approved proposals is provided here:

  • Self-approval authorization for non-transmitting RF devices combines the two existing self-approval procedures, and simplifies the authorization protocol for many of the devices authorized under these rules;
  • Electronic labeling of RF devices codifies and expands the existing guidance for electronic labeling for FCC-authorized equipment with a display capability;
  • RF Equipment Importation Rules modify certain importation requirements to readily identify parties responsible for the compliance of imported devices, to permit additional importations prior to authorization in certain cases, and to discontinue the filing requirement for FCC Form 740 for import declaration;
  • Measurement procedures and standards revise FCC measurement procedures to streamline and consolidate requirements for devices used in different services, to facilitate FCC response to changes in technology and industry standards, and to enhance general understanding of FCC measurement requirements.

Note: With respect to existing equipment authorized under verification or Declaration of Conformity (DoC) procedures, it is expected that the FCC will consider any equipment with an existing verification or DoC prior to the end of the transition period to remain valid with no further action required, provided the equipment is not modified in such a way that would have required a new authorization under those verification or DoC rules。


LED Lighting & FCC Compliance

Question:斗地主达人 We have been advised that an LED bulb manufactured overseas is non-compliant with the FCC rules and regulations. What are the most recent rules governing LED bulbs?

Answer: Though RF LED lighting devices intentionally generate RF energy, they are not intended to radiate RF energy by radiation or induction, therefore they are classified and subject to the rules of unintentional radiators under 47CFR§15.

Specifically, RF LED lighting is required to meet the line-conducted emissions limits in and the radiated emissions limits from 30 to 1000 MHz in .

斗地主达人With operating frequencies similar to those in digital electronic products in most cases, LED lighting devices are subject to the “verification” equipment authorization procedure (soon to be the Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) per FCC R&O 17-93).

With verified devices, the manufacturer is responsible for ensuring compliance, but in the case of imported equipment, the importer is responsible for ensuring compliance。 Non-compliant products should not be operated。

KDB 640677 D01 RF LED Lighting v01 explains how the rules are to be applied to these products, and how the responsible parties can help to mitigate interference both pre- and post-production.


RED Article 10 Implementation Update

Question: Some of the administrative requirements under the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU had not been finalized at the time it became effective, specifically Article 10, “Obligations of manufacturers”. Has it been determined yet how manufacturers are to indicate restrictions and/or requirements for putting radio equipment into service, or for authorizing its use in one or more member states, under the RED?

Answer: Yes, on July 20, 2017 was published, and it specifies how the required information in Article 10(10) dealing with restrictions and authorization of use is to be indicated on the packaging and in the information accompanying the radio equipment. This implementing regulation provides clear direction and concise details to enable manufacturers to understand and present the necessary information formatted as required to be in conformity with Article 10(10) of the .


FCC Certification for Combination Devices

Question: We have a product with two transmitters, each subject to a different FCC rule part. How can we obtain FCC approval for it?

Answer:斗地主达人 of the FCC rules permits filing for certification of transmitting devices that are subject to multiple FCC rule parts.

斗地主达人For unlicensed transmitters, provide guidance for measurement procedures for composite devices which contain multiple transmitters.

斗地主达人Applications require that each transmitter complies with all the technical requirements specified for the associated individual FCC rule part。

Please note that if both transmitters operate at the same time, it may be necessary to address the effects of simultaneous transmission。

All combination devices must meet RF exposure requirements, and all other FCC rules.

There may be additional requirements or restrictions enforced by the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB)

For licensed or licensed-by-rule transmitters, there are additional requirements and/or restrictions. We recommend that you consult the Pre-Approval Guidance (PAG) List to determine if the intended FCC rules combination will be allowed. We also strongly recommend that you submit a PAG inquiry for FCC review and feedback. The Subject line should indicate the FCC rule parts combination you are seeking; the body of your email should include the type of wireless transmitters, with detailed operational descriptions including frequencies, RF power, etc., as well as a description of the intended end product and its implementation.
