Elite's Regulatory Connected Conformity Process for FCC & ISED Canada Compliance

At Elite we perform regulatory compliance testing on digital devices, receivers, and intentional transmitters. Elite is also a FCC Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB) and are designated to directly issue FCC certifications.   Similarly, we test devices for Innovation, Science, and Economic Development (ISED) Canada compliance. As a Canada Certification Body we issue type approval certification for devices that are marketed for use in Canada.  Elite’s test and certification services offer manufacturers convenience, cost savings, and assurance that products are compliant and ready for market in a timely manner.

Elite’s Connected Conformity Process-  Takes you from start-to-market.    We begin by understanding your product and its application, then we outline a plan for your conformity steps and define the tests, documents, labels, and information you will need to become compliant and market ready.  We certify your products when necessary and help you broaden you reach with our our global market access partner Global Validity.  Lastly, we will help you remain compliance when your product or the compliance requirements change.

FCC Testing Regulations

The FCC testing requirements for wireless and digital devices are listed in Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR Title 47).  The key rule parts for equipment authorization include FCC Part 15B for unintentional radiators such as digital devices and receivers.  Rules for low power intentional transmitters are  in Part 15C and Part 15E, and higher power transmitters used in licensed band applications are noted in the following table.

FCC 15BUnintentional Radiators
FCC 15CLow Power Intentional Radiators
FCC 90Licensed Private Land Mobile Transmitters
Part 22/24/27Cellular Radio Transmitters
