We can test to Canadian standards, but if your product has been tested previously and meets all the requirements for FCC or RCM compliance you might not need to test your product again.
Legal implications for ISED marking
Each product must be tested to the relevant applicable section of the ISED rules at a registered and accredited test site. Product test reports shall be held by the responsible supplier. Intentional radiators (Transmitters) must have the test report and associated technical documentation submitted to Industry Canada or a designated TCB (Telecommunications Certification Body/Technical conformity body). A local representative is required for declaration of conformance. Maintain records on file for the following five years.
Industry Canada accepts FCC (Federal Communications Commission) test reports. If your equipment meets the limits set out in the applicable ISED standard when testing for FCC compliance, your equipment need not be retested.
Additional requirements apply:
– FCC reports should contain a statement indicating that results are deemed satisfactory evidence of compliance with Industry Canada.
