SGS United Kingdom Ltd can now fulfil all wireless certification needs with a cost effective solution to global markets.

Exporting products is an important part of lengthening any product life cycle, particularly in such an international marketplace, and before beginning this process you want to make sure your products are fully compliant with any foreign regulations. Having your radio products tested by a Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB) is an essential part of this process.

Building upon our existing Foreign Certification Body (FCB) status for Canada, SGS has now been appointed as a TCB for America as well. SGS is certified to test to local and international standards across Europe, Asia and America, and can now fulfil all of our clients’ wireless certification needs, with a cost effective solution to market, whilst guiding you through the approvals process.

With the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) or TCB approvals services from SGS, you will benefit from the following:

  • SGS' one-stop service for North America
  • Conformity to FCC standards
  • Assurance that your products qualify for FCC certification
  • Our years of experience and expertise in this area

Zee Ellahi, UK Electrical Operations Manager has commented that: “This new certification means we can now provide certification of wireless products, for both the American and Canadian markets, as we can supply the total solution for testing and certification of wireless devices, such as low power radio devices, Bluetooth and WLAN. In essence, we can test your products locally for global markets.”

If you are thinking of becoming certified, you will need the following documentation in order to use the TCB services:

  • Registration forms (available from SGS)
  • Product user manual
  • Printed circuit board layouts, schematics and bill of materials
  • Test reports and subsequent information

A member of the TCB team will then review the submitted evidence and work with you to ensure the information provided is satisfactory for inclusion on the FCC website. SGS will then issue the Grant of Equipment Authorisation.
