Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED, formerly Industry Canada IC) regulates the radio spectrum for all transmitters operated in Canada. The Radio Standards Specifications (RSS) detail the technical requirements for radio transmitters.
IC Approval Procedure
As specified in official IC page website, there are three main ways of authorizing the equipment:
- Certification process
- Declaration of Conformity
- Suppliers Declaration of Conformity
IC SDoC Compliance
The Supplier's Declaration of Conformity (SDoC) is the conformity assessment scheme used for Category II radio, broadcasting, and interference-causing equipment. The responsible party tests the Category II equipment and ensures that it meets the appropriate technical standards. The responsible party also labels the equipment and fulfills any other administrative requirements as required by the standards (e.g. user manual notices, test report retention). Equipment testing does not have to be performed by a recognized ISED testing laboratory.
Category II equipment is exempt from certification and registration. The label placed on each unit of the interference-causing equipment model, according to the applicable ICES standard, represents the manufacturer's or the importer's SDoC with ISED requirements
The TSW304 conformity with the essential requirements has been demonstrated against the following harmonized standards:
|ISED Standard||Test report No.|
|ANSI C63.4 (2014)||SZEM220800577201|
|ICES-003: Issue 6 (2017)||SZEM220800577201|

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).
