The Elite Certification Process
The process for testing and certification of intentional transmitters begins with a review of your product and market access needs by Elite application engineers and technical support staff. We identify applicable RF test requirements as well as other conformity considerations such as electrical safety and RF hazards evaluations (SAR). Start your TCB certification by downloading the applicable certification forms and checklists.

We have forms, checklists and other supportive documents which will guide you through the process assuring your certification or conformity assessment comes together in the shortest time possible.
In the shortest possible time, Elite will grant the FCC certification, Canadian certification, and offer a Statement of Opinion for the European Union.
