Multiple Rule Part Transmitters

Question: We are manufacturing a wireless device that operates under various FCC rule parts. Are there any restrictions for certifying our device?

Answer: The answer depends in large part on the rule parts under which your device operates, and if they are unlicensed or licensed rule parts.

FCC 47CFR§2。1033(e) permits certification of transmitting devices that are subject to multiple rule parts, provided that the device complies with the technical requirements in each individual rule part。

47CFR§15.31(k) defines a composite system wherein “……each device must comply with its specific standards” and provides guidance for measurement procedures for composite devices which contain multiple transmitters.

Equipment operating under multiple rule parts/equipment classes, and composite devices, are approved under one FCC ID, however multiple Form 731 line items must be submitted。

However, if your device operates under multiple licensed rule parts or licensed-by-rule wireless radio services, there are additional requirements and/or restrictions.

FCC publication 149672 D01 Xmit Certified Mult Rule Parts v01r01 provides additional guidance for multiple licensed rule part transmitting device combinations which are either:

  • Prohibited by rule;
  • Permitted with additional requirements beyond the individual rule parts;
  • Subject to a special “Permit But Ask” procedure for FCC approval prior to Certification;
  • Subject to additional approvals from other government agencies.

If your device is subject to licensed rules parts, there may be additional requirements or restrictions enforced by the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB).

Please note that all combination transmitting devices must meet RF exposure requirements and all other FCC rules.

If you have specific questions about your transmitting device, please go to , review the available publications, and Submit an Inquiry if you don’t find a conclusive answer.


Testing RF Lighting Devices

Question: Are LED bulbs subject to any FCC rules?

Answer: In most cases, light-emitting-diode (LED) lighting products utilize switching power supplies which operate at RF frequencies similar to those used in digital electronic products. Therefore, FCC rules must be applied in order to control potential interference to radio communications services.

To clarify the testing requirements for lighting devices, including LEDs and fluorescent light ballasts, the FCC published 斗地主达人640677 D01 RF LIGHTING DR01-41878, Draft for Review RF Lighting Products Must Meet All FCC Standards to Mitigate Potential Harmful Interferences to Radio Services on August 27, 2014.

斗地主达人Lighting devices that power a bulb or tube with direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) below 9 kHz, and utilize switching power supply technology, must comply with the following:

  • AC Power Line Conducted Emission Limits: for Class B (residential) devices or 47CFR§15.107(b) for Class A (commercial) devices, as appropriate.
  • Radiated Emission Limits: for Class B (residential) devices or 47CFR§15.109(b) for Class A (commercial), as appropriate. Radiated emission measurements are to be performed from 30 MHz to 1000 MHz.
  • Equipment Authorization Procedure: The “Verification” equipment authorization procedure is used for both Class A and Class B devices.

The FCC intends to strictly enforce the testing rules for RF lighting in order to mitigate the potential for interference, and strongly encourages manufacturers to help resolve any instances of harmful interference that may occur, in order to avoid enforcement actions and possible sanctions.


Industry Canada Public Safety Equipment

Question: We manufacture public safety equipment which operates in the band 4940-4990 MHz and utilizes wireless battery chargers. What are the applicable standards for Industry Canada?

Answer: Please refer to Industry Canada’s recently published standards:


FCC and IC E-labels

Question: What is the current status of e-labeling under FCC and Industry Canada rules and regulations?

Answer: As announced in the August 2014 MultiPoint, the FCC published 784748 D02 e labelling v01 on July 11, 2014, with the approved e-labeling guidelines for devices with an integrated display screen, which are subject to DoC or certification. These final guidelines are consistent with the summaries provided in past editions of this newsletter. Please consult this FCC document to ensure that your e-labels are compliant with all of the published requirements.

On August 22, 2014 Industry Canada released a draft consultation on Electronic Labelling, Notice 2014 DRS0821 (Draft), to advise interested parties that it is announcing how devices with an integrated display screen can present the required label information electronically (e-label) in lieu of a physical label or nameplate. This applies to all devices which have an integral (non-removable) display screen and are currently subject to certification or registration requirements. The draft specifies the information to be displayed, user accessibility to the required information, labelling for importation and purchasing, security, user manual/packaging, and transmitter modules; the requirements as drafted are similar to those of the FCC.

斗地主达人The comment period has closed; the requirements will become effective immediately upon publication of Industry Canada’s final guidance。
