FCC – Federal Communications Commission - deals with the admission of communication devices such as radio, television, wireless network device, satellite communication devices for use in the US.
The FCC has created criteria that determine the possibility of marking the FCC product and registration as an approved product.
All radio devices are divided into the following groups:
A: Unlicensed radio devices, incl:
A1: Low power transmitters operating at frequencies below 1 GHz (except for scattering spectrum devices), alarm systems, devices emitting radio waves unintentionally (eg personal computers and associated peripherals and TV interface devices) and consumer ISM devices subject to certification (eg microwave ovens, RF lighting and other consumer ISM devices).
A2: Low power transmitters operating at frequencies above 1 GHz, except for scattered spectrum devices.
A4: Unlicensed national information infrastructure (UNII) devices and low power transmitters using distributed spectrum techniques.
B: Licensed radio equipment.
B1: Commercial mobile services in 47 CFR Parts 20, 22 (cellular), 24, 25 and 27.
B2: General mobile radio services in 47 CFR parts 22 (non-cellular), 73, 74, 90, 95 and 97.
