With one of the largest telecoms markets in the world, North American radio certifications are critical for those looking to achieve global growth. With services for FCC certification in the US and ISED certification in Canada, Element’s radio experts help you test and certify your wireless products to obtain compliance to North American requirements.
As new technology continues to evolve, telecoms and radio legislation is regularly updated to ensure an interference-free radio spectrum. We understand the importance of efficient testing and certification to staying competitive. Our team of experts help you stay on top of the latest certifications, helping you gain quick market access and remain compliant.
Under U.S. law, all equipment containing a radio is regulated by Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Element provides testing and certification to satisfy the requirements of 47 CFR, including all rule parts that include radio wireless equipment. As an FCC Conformity Assessment Body (CAB), Element is authorized to test products per these rule parts, and to provide certification for use in the United States through its appointment as a Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB).
Element also provides wireless testing for products in the Canadian market. Radio equipment in Canada is regulated by one of several standards under the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED-Canada). Our labs are authorized as a Foreign Certification Body (FCB) for Canada, granting us authorization to test and certify devices for use.
As a globally recognized provider of product safety testing, we are your partner of choice for FCC certification and ISED certification services. We help you stay on top of regional standards and statutory regulations, so you can focus on providing the latest technology to consumers around the world.
