Building on the 2014 Report and Order that modified the RF equipment authorization program, last week the FCC released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to update the radiofrequency (RF) equipment evaluation and approval rules.  The Commission proposes to make a number of changes, such as combining the two RF equipment approval programs, codifying and clarifying the modular transmitter certification provisions, codifying the electronic labeling provisions, and eliminating the requirement that device importers file Form 740.  Comments on the Commission’s proposals are due 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, which has not yet occurred.  Reply Comments are due 45 days after publication.
