Focus on recognitions dedicated to North American market

  • EMC requirements / American and Canadian Radio

    FCC ListedIn United States the EMC requirements meet the radio aspects of the frequency spectrum management. They are mainly managed by the Federal Communications Commission and only concern the emission aspect (forget the immunity aspect). Specific rules are applicable to radio transmitter.

    Three procedures are applicable depending on the product type : checking, DoC or certification, this last one needs to be "FCC listed".


    Industrie Canada Emitech is recognised by Industrie Canada for all approval procedure of radiocommunication equipment which required measures in open test site area.
    Although bilateral agreements on FCC regulation exist with United States, if technical rules differ, it is the Industrie Canada which is requisite.


  • Requirements linked to electrical risk prevention

    In United States, equipment for professional use must follow the NEC requirements as well as specific requirements from a State or a town. The support to a certification mark, recognise by the NRTL program, allows to proof the product conformity.

    In order to release their legal responsibility, distributor of products dedicated to general public can ask for a mark to be affixed on the product.

    On the canadian market, affixing a certification mark is compulsory whatever is the product purpose.
