FCC & ISED Certification
Radio equipment entering to US market must undergo an authorization process set by FCC. There are three ways to obtain the authorization:
- Suppliers Declaration of Conformity (SDoC)
- Combination of Certification process + SDoC
FCC web page tells you the principles of the three routes.
The ISED process used in Canada is very similar to FCC process. Actual test specifications are very similar. Thus it makes sense to run FCC and ISED processes together. The cost delta doing ISED along FCC is minor.
How much testing is needed depends on product implementation. Usage of pre-certified radio modules can reduce the amount of needed tests considerably, but never remove the need to test the final product as well.
