Meet your time-to-market targets
In the U.S. the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all products containing radio transmitters (radio, marine and satellite equipment) in areas such as electromagnetic interference, radio frequency (RF) exposure and spectrum allocation. Marine communications equipment and other products capable of radio communication and navigation must therefore be certified compliant by a Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB), which has been appointed by the FCC.
To access the U.S. marine radio and telecommunications equipment market, manufacturers and importers must ensure that their products comply and meet all criteria for FCC certification. Non-compliance may lead to costly delays, fines and forfeitures, as well as reputation-damaging product recalls. Expert advice on applicable requirements and regulations, as well as compliance strategy guidance, is therefore required to ensure FCC acceptance.
