FCC certification is the most stringent approval process for RF devices with the greatest potential to cause harmful interference to radio services. It is a device approval granted by an FCC-recognised Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) based on an evaluation of documentation and test data submitted to the TCB by the responsible party (e.g. the manufacturer or importer). The tests are carried out by an accredited test laboratory recognised by the FCC.
In addition, devices approved under the Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) process may optionally use the certification process.

The Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) is a procedure whereby the party responsible for conformity must ensure that the product complies with the relevant technical standards. The responsible party, which must be located in the United States, is not required to submit an application for product approval to the Commission or a TCB. Devices approved under the SDoC process are not maintained in a Commission database. However, the responsible party or any other party marketing the device must provide a test report and other information demonstrating compliance to the Commission upon request. The responsible party has the option to use the certification procedure instead of the SDoC procedure.

BlueQ Services provides regulatory test services (ISO 17025 accredited) for all test standards listed below and can obtain FCC Certification for your radio products via our partner TCBs.
