Equipment Authorization

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC has extensive experience with the arcane procedures used to qualify radio-emitting and digital devices for the U.S. market. Our expertise includes the electronic measurement procedures required for compliance testing. We have the in-house technical competence to work with the client’s engineers and the FCC’s lab personnel. We help to develop suitable methods for compliance testing of new technologies. We work with the FCC lab and FCC-designated Telecommunications Certification Bodies to minimize delays in approval. And we help clients evaluate subsequent changes to the product for needed testing and/or further regulatory submissions.

We are experts in the “marketing rules” that govern product promotion and sale both before and after FCC approval. Where a client’s activities have triggered FCC enforcement action, our lawyers assist in formulating the necessary defenses and in minimizing any damage.
