Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
OET Equipment Authorization
PJLA is recognized by the FCC and was added to the list of accreditation bodies that are acceptable for use by testing laboratories.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) regulates all Radio Frequency devices and finalizes the approval of each type of device before it can be marketed or imported to the United States.
Laboratories seeking recognition by the Commission to perform testing of telecommunication equipment subject to the FCC’s rules can reach out to PJLA to receive ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation.
Accreditation offers many benefits:
- Demonstration of a well-established quality management system producing reliable and competent test and calibration results
- Reduction of the amount of supplier or regulatory assessments required
- Competitive advantage in the marketplace
- International Recognition of test and calibration reports
