In order to be marketed in the United States, radio equipment must meet the regulatory requirements set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). These requirements include conformity testing in an FCC-recognised laboratory and product certification carried out either by the FCC itself or by an FCC-approved Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB).
Applus+ is recognised by the FCC both as an authorised test firm (ISO/IEC 17025 accredited
), and as a TCB ES0002 (ISO/IEC 17065 accredited). We can generate conformity certificates providing wireless products with access to the US market.
Our European laboratories are accredited by the FCC and we are an approved TCB for the following product categories:
Scope A (unlicensed radio devices):
- A1: Low-power transmitters operating on frequencies below 1 GHz (except spread-spectrum devices), emergency alert systems, unintentional radiators y consumer ISM devices
- A2: Low-power transmitters operating on frequencies above 1 GHz (except spread-spectrum devices)
- A4: Low-power transmitters using spread-spectrum techniques
