Manufacturers planning to sell their wireless/RF products in the United States must ensure that their equipment won’t electromagnetically interfere with other products or cause harm to the public as enforced by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), per Title 47 of Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).

As an authorized TCB (Telecommunications Certification Body), MET performs testing and evaluation needed for FCC approval of various types of radio, wireless, and telephone equipment. MET is authorized to issue Grants of Equipment Authorization for any equipment for which there is a defined rule part and procedure within Title 47 of the CFR. Following the issuance of this grant, the grantee will be free to begin marketing the device in the United States.

As part of our nationwide locations, MET Labs’ Silicon Valley laboratories, Our end-to-end testing and certification solutions help you identify your product’s FCC regulatory requirements, determine if it requires approval, and evaluate it to the applicable FCC rule part(s) to help you successfully achieve approval and market access for your wireless or radio device.
