The Elite Certification Process

The process 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 or MPE). Start your TCB certification by downloading the applicable certification forms and checklists.

Concurrent with the testing phase, Elite certification specialists help you through the administrative and technical data evaluation phase. 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.

Following the review and approval, Elite will grant the FCC certification, issue the Canadian Technical Acceptance Certificate, and/or offer a Statement of Opinion for the European Union.

Finally, Elite will complete the data transmittal requirements or conduct country notifications where applicable and if necessary perform product surveillance evaluations (as required).
