Wireless Inductive Charger Certification

Question:斗地主达人 We want to certify a wireless short-distance inductive coupled charging pad. How do we proceed?

Answer:斗地主达人 If your wireless power transfer device operates at frequencies above 9 kHz, it is considered an intentional radiator and is subject to Part 15 and/or Part 18 of the FCC rules. The applicable rule part is dependent on how the charging pad operates, and if it communicates with the device it is charging.

Because your device is specifically intended for wireless power transfer, and/or inductive charging, you must obtain guidance from the FCC with regard to radio frequency exposure review.

To obtain guidance from the FCC, submit a wireless charging application inquiry at http://www。fcc。gov/labhelp as follows:

  • "Subject" line should state “Seeking guidance for wireless chargers”
  • Provide the following information:
    • complete product description, including coil diameters, number of turns and current
    • the rule part(s) the device will operate in and the reasoning for rule part(s)
    • planned equipment authorization procedure
    • drawings, illustrations
    • frequencies
    • radiated power
    • operating configurations
    • conditions for human exposure

Further guidance on wireless inductive chargers can be found in 680106 D01 RF Exposure Wireless Charging Apps v02.


Pre-Approval Guidance

Question: We are a new company hoping to obtain FCC certification for our wireless device, however we were told that we need pre-approval guidance from the FCC. Why is this necessary?

Answer:斗地主达人 FCC Pre-Approval Guidance, or PAG (previously known as the Permit-But-Ask (PBA) procedure), includes a Pre-Approval Guidance list that identifies categories of equipment, or types of testing, for which Telecommunication Certification Bodies (TCBs) must request guidance from the FCC before approving equipment on this list, and your device must be on this list. This is necessary in those cases where there is either none or only partial FCC guidance available, or FCC oversight is still considered necessary due to the technology.

You can review the 斗地主达人PAG Procedure and PAG Procedure List here.


Demonstrating a Non-Certified Device

Question: We have a Part 15 device that has not yet been FCC certified, but we would like to demonstrate it to a client. Under what circumstances can we do so?

Answer: Under certain circumstances, you may operate your device prior to FCC certification authorization, as long as the device is made inoperable or is retrieved at the conclusion of the demonstration.

斗地主达人If your device is not operated at your facility, but instead at a trade show or an exhibition, it must be accompanied by the following conspicuously placed language from :

“This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.”

Or alternatively, all prospective buyers must receive written notification that the device is subject to the applicable FCC rules, and will comply with the appropriate rules before any distribution of the device.

provides other important details about acceptable marketing activities and relevant criteria for radio frequency devices prior to equipment authorization.

provides detailed information on the criteria and circumstances for operating radio frequency devices prior to equipment authorization, and should be carefully reviewed before doing so.


Multiple FCC IDs for one RF Device

Question: Can one RF device have multiple FCC ID#’s, and if so, how is this done?

Answer: It is possible for one RF device to have multiple FCC ID#’s, per , provided all affected parties are in agreement.

A change in ID# without a change in design, circuitry or construction requires a new certification application, though no test data is typically required。 The change in identification application does require statements and accompanying photographs of the device and ID label, as detailed in 47CFR§2。933。

Hong Kong – New 79 GHz Automotive Radar Rules

On October 7, 2016, Hong Kong’s Communication Authority (CA) proposed to create a class license under section 7B(2) of the Telecommunications Ordinance to regulate the use of 79 GHz Radars.

The CA further proposed that the scope of the class license should cover the possession, use, sale and demonstration of 79 GHz Radars, thereby obviating the need for individual license applications。

South Africa – ICASA Considers RF Type Approval Exemptions

In late September 2016, South Africa’s Communications Authority (ICASA) issued a discussion document inviting industry to provide feedback regarding a new proposal to exempt certain product types from ICASA Type Approval. The main exemption considerations are:

  1. Equipment approved for use by the European Telecommunications Standards Associations or other competent standards body.
  2. Equipment used under certain circumstances, such as research and development, demonstrations, prototype testing, maritime or aeronautical operations, and equipment imported as spare parts or components for repair.

Please see link for to the and note all comments must be submitted to ICASA by December 2, 1016.

South Africa – NRCS Delays

South Africa’s National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) is expected to experience continued delays in lead time for LOA approvals (currently 120 – 200 working days) due to the resignation of its CEO, Mr. Asogan Moodley, citing his frustrations with the inefficiency of the organization and lack of cooperation from the South African Department of Trade and Industry.

Vietnam – Upcoming Rule Changes for License Exempt Users

Vietnam’s Authority Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) plans to update existing Circular No. 03/2012/TT-BTTTT regarding radio frequencies allowed for license-exempt use. In the recently finalized draft regulation, MIC plans to allow new bands for license-exempt use of new technologies such as 802.11ad (60 GHz), wireless charging (9 to 148.5 kHz) and vehicle radar (76-77 GHz and 77-81 GHz). This draft is expected to be approved and published by the end of 2016.

Columbia – New Certification Requirements

Colombia’s telecommunications regulator, Comision de Regulacion de Comunicaciones (CRC), recently issued Resolution CRC 5031 de 2016 which modifies the Capítulo I del Título XIII of Resolution CRT 087 of 1997. The new resolution requires all mobile phones, satellite-connected devices, and devices connected to the Public Switching Telephone Network (PSTN) to obtain formal homologation. All mobile terminal equipment operating in Colombian mobile bands (850 MHz, 1900 MHz, [AWS] 1700/2100 MHz, y/o 2500 MHz) will also be required to obtain type approval at CRC, thereby requiring applicable products, without voice function, to be subject to mandatory type approval. The new requirement is effective January 7, 2017, but is not retroactive; therefore devices with prior dispensation letters are excluded from the homologation process.

Argentina – New Test Standards for Low Power Devices

On August 2, 2016, Argentina’s ENACOM issued Resolution No. 6038/2016, a new testing standard for Low Power Devices. A summary of the changes are as follows:

  1. Frequency bands were updated.
  2. One sample is required for radiated test if the equipment channel can be selected on the product.  If not, then two samples must be provided: one for the lower channel and another for the higher channel.
  3. Modular tests and modular approvals are accepted.
  4. The similarity between two or more equipment could be accepted for those devices that are exactly the same radio part, hardware and the antennas.
  5. The renewals and tests using the previous standard will be accepted for 180 days from the publication date (8/2/2016).
