Summary: The Federal Communications Commission, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, Public Law 104-13, and as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection(s). An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a valid control number. Comments are requested concerning: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

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.
