Needs and Uses: The equipment authorization procedure requires that equipment manufacturers or equipment suppliers test a product to ensure compliance with technical standards for limiting radio frequency emissions and include a declaration of compliance (DoC) with the standards in the literature furnished with the equipment. This statement of conformity and supporting technical data would be made available to the FCC by the responsible party, at the request of the FCC. Further, the FCC will permit personal computers to be authorized based on tests and approval of their individual components, without further testing of the completed assembly. Testing and documentation of compliance aids in controlling potential interference to radio communications. The data may be used for investigating complaints of harmful interference; to determine that the equipment marketed complies with the applicable FCC Rules; and to insure that the operation of the equipment is consistent with the initially documented test results.
