The FCC label is found even on products sold outside the US territory, because they are either products manufactured in the US and had been exported, or they are also sold in the US. This makes the FCC label recognizable worldwide even to people to whom the name of the agency Federal Communications Commission is not familiar
The Federal Communications Commission established the regulations on electromagnetic interference under Part 15 of the FCC rules in 1975. After several amendments over the years, these regulation were reconstituted as the Declaration of Conformity and Certification procedures in 1998.
FCC Approval procedure
As specified in official FCC website, there are three main ways of authorizing the equipment:
- Certification process
- Suppliers Declaration of Conformity
- Both procedures
TSW304 Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity (SDoC)
For TSW304 FCC compliance SDoC procedure is mandatory. That requires the party responsible for compliance ensure that the equipment complies with the appropriate technical standards. The responsible party, who must be located in the United States, is not required to file an equipment authorization application with the Commission or a TCB. Equipment authorized under the SDoC procedure is not listed in a Commission database. However, the responsible party or any other party marketing the equipment must provide a test report and other information demonstrating compliance with the rules upon request by the Commission. The responsible party has the option to use the certification procedure in place of the SDoC procedure.
Official Federal Communications Commission for SDoC compliance requires and mandates two major parties:
- manufacturer (Teltonika) to test the device for all applicable standards;
- local US entity (Importer or Marketer) to sign Supplier's Declaration of Conformity.
The TSW304 conformity with the essential requirements has been demonstrated against the following harmonized standards:
|FCC Standard||Test report No.|
|FCC Code CFR47 Part15B (2019)||SZEM220800577101|
|ANSI C63.4 (2014)||SZEM220800577101|
To be in compliance to FCC
We, Teltonika, have fulfilled our duty of testing the device for all the required standards by FCC.
Only Importer or Marketer, local US entity, can sign Supplier's Declaration of Conformity, therefore please find SDoC below and sign by your own entity's name.
Test reports that are referenced in declarations and certificates can be provided upon request. For the request to be approved, the recipient of the test reports should be a certification authority or certified test house. The recipients will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
