With services for FCC certification in the US and UK, Element’s radio experts help you test and certify your wireless technology devices to obtain FCC regulatory approval for a successful product launch in the United States.


FCC certification

Element is an FCC appointed Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB); a TCB must be used for certification of radio devices which enables the use of an FCC ID on the products. FCC certification is required for certain categories of radio devices prior to placing them into the US market place.  


Your equipment needs to be assessed to applicable FCC rule parts and then the results (test reports) are submitted, along with other documentation such as schematic diagrams, bill of materials, user materials, etc. to the TCB for evaluation. 


A successful evaluation of the submitted documents will lead to Element issuing an FCC Grants of Equipment Authorization allowing you to place your product into the US market. 


The difference between FCC certification and ISED

Although the FCC and ISED certification process can be similar, separate certifications are required for these two countries (an FCC is not accepted in Canada and vice versa). As a recognized FCC TCB, Element’s Engaged Experts will ensure that your wireless products have been tested to the appropriate standards for the fastest route to compliance.


Advisory services for FCC certification

For those that need guidance on the regulatory FCC certification requirements for a particular product, Element’s advisory services help you determine which of the regulations apply to your product. Our advisory services program provides design advice and testing of components and prototypes, fixing issues before they arise and making final testing and certifying quicker and easier.
