Global leader in number of TCB certificates issued


Manufacturers who wish to sell telecom, licensed RF, and low powered transmitters in the United States and Canada must have their products tested by an accredited lab and certified by the FCC/ISED for EMC/Telecom compliance.


A TCB is responsible for testing, evaluating, and reviewing the product, to verify that it meets all of the applicable FCC rules and regulations. To do this, the manufacturer needs to provide fully functioning device samples, technical documentation, and operating instructions that will enable to fully investigate the operating abilities and parameters, so that they can render a valid and fair decision on the conformity of the product.
