IoT and Other RF Device Suppliers Take Note: The FCC's New Authorization and Importation Rules Are Now Effective
The CommLaw Group has issued a client advisory regarding the Federal Communications Commission's new rules for radio frequency equipment authorization.
The FCC requires that labeling and regulatory information, when digitally displayed, should be accessible in no more than three steps. Examples include: (a) user accessing the device settings menu; (b) accessing a submenu of legal information; and (c) accessing a further submenu of FCC compliance information. Accessing the applicable information must not require any sort of code or permission.
In order to ensure that the labeling and regulatory information is provided effectively to the purchaser, the user must be provided with clear instructions on how the access the required information in either the packaging material or another easily accessible format at time of purchase. This information must be also available on the responsible party's website.
Measurement Procedures and Standards
The FCC's new rules permit measurement data to include references to information available in its Knowledge Database publications. Responsible parties may also now reference specific sections of the ANSI C63.26 as a standard for compliance testing of licensed devices.
The Devil Is in the Details
If you would like additional information about the FCC's RF equipment rules, including suggestions for best practices, please contact IoT attorney Ronald E. Quirk, Jr. at (703) 714-1305 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information about Marashlian & Donahue's Internet of Things and Connected Devices practice is available here.
