Applus+ appointed Telecommunication Certification Body for the United States (FCC)

    This recognition sits alongside the company’s accreditation as an EU Notified Body for the RED Directive, putting it in a position to certify wireless products for two of the world’s key markets.
    Applus+ has been named as a Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB ES0002) by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This recognition will help Applus+ to expand its portfolio of wireless and IoT services. From now on, Applus+ will be able to carry out the mandatory certification process to access the US market.
    The US conformity process involves product testing and certification by a test laboratory accredited for ISO/IEC 17025 and a certification body accredited for ISO/IEC 17065 that have both been recognised by the FCC.
    The FCC accreditation of Applus+ as a certification body sits alongside the company’s prior status as a Notified Body (no. 0370) for the EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (RED). Applus+ was already accredited to carry out conformity testing to European, US and Canadian market standards.
    As far as other markets are concerned, our regulatory experts can run global conformity programmes through our agreements with third-party laboratories and certification bodies.
