CE, FCC and ISED Certifications

Verkotan provides pre-certification and formal certification to speed up the market entry of your product.

CE, FCC and ISED markings indicate that the device does not interfere with other electronic devices and meets the necessary health and environmental protection requirements set by the region. To be able to sell radio equipment CE marking is required in European Union, FCC certification in United States and ISED certification in Canada.

 

CE Testing for a Radio Device

We provide solutions for radio device CE testing. Testing can include e.g. the following test areas: safety & health testing, EMC, RF and radiated spurious emissions. In addition, restriction of use of certain hazardous substances (ROHS) compliance is checked.

Testing services:

  • Safety and health testing which covers all health and safety risks of electrical equipment
  • EMC testing has to be done on all electrical devices
  • RF and radiated spurious emissions testing which includes e.g. the testing of cellular bands, GNSS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC testing
FCC and ISED Certification

Your telecom, licensed RF and low powered transmitter products must be tested by FCC recognized ISO17025 accredited test laboratory if you want to sell your products in the United States.

For sales in Canada, compliance with Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada standards are required. Those requirements are very similar to those of FCC so it is common that Canadian certification is performed in parallel to FCC certification. The Industry Canada IC logo should be affixed to a certified product.

Verkotan can help you to manage your wireless device’s conformity process. We provide solutions for both pre-certifications and formal certifications.

With our great experience with the FCC and ISED certification process, Verkotan can help you get the FCC and ISED mark for your product. We can speed up your devices access to the USA and Canadian  markets.
