Equipment Authorization

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys have extensive experience with the arcane “equipment authorization” procedures used to qualify radio transmitters and digital devices for the U.S. market. We have the in-house technical competence to work with the client’s engineers and the Federal Communications Commission’s lab personnel.

Our work includes the electronic measurement procedures required for compliance testing. We help to develop suitable methods for compliance testing of new technologies. We work with the FCC lab and FCC-designated Telecommunications Certification Bodies to minimize delays in approval, and help clients evaluate changes to their products for needed testing and/or further regulatory submissions.

We are also experienced in the “marketing rules” that govern product promotion and sale before and after FCC approval. Where a client’s activities have triggered FCC enforcement action, our lawyers assist in formulating defenses and minimizing damage.
