A while ago, I often saw-
Discussions about platforms requiring sellers to upload FCC notices by March 7.
Amazon Notification Email
The 3.7th has passed for a long time, and I thought that the topic of FCC is about to come to an end.
However, I just saw a piece of information, which is also related to FCC ID certification.
From April 1, 2022, FCC ID certification has changed new regulatory requirements.
The FCC issued a notice that on March 31, 2022, the new regulations will be officially implemented for portable devices in contact with the human body, and the limit of maximum power will be reduced in an all-round way (* if the limit is exceeded, SAR will be mandatory). That is to say, portable devices that come into contact with the human body must apply for the FCCID.
In order to make it easier for everyone to understand, I will give an example:
1: Portable equipment under 1MW (0dBm) is exempt from SAR;
2: The following typical devices have updated limit requirements:
1) 2.4GWIFI and Bluetooth human 5mm contact portable device;
2) 5.2GWIFI human body 5mm contact portable device;
3) 5.8GWIFI human body 5mm contact portable device.
To sum up, WLAN-enabled portable products must do SAR, and SAR cannot be avoided by reducing power like this. The new limit is too low, and the power of Bluetooth portable products should not be too high. SAR.
In fact, this requirement is to upgrade the old version of the standard KDB 447498 D01 to the new version of the standard KDB 447498 D04 according to the new version of the US FCC standard.
It is worth mentioning that the emergence of new standards may lead to increased testing costs and cycles for some products of sellers.
Which electronic products will be affected?
For portable electronic products that use batteries as energy, products that cannot be exempted from SAR after the new regulations are used, and the use distance is within 5mm, such as: Bluetooth headsets, wristbands, watches, mobile phones, notebooks, tablet computers, MP3, AR equipment , pedometer and other electronic products. In the FCC part, if the power does not meet the new exemption requirements, SAR testing is performed.
Troubleshooting New FCC Standards
1. How will the new standard affect cross-border sellers?
If the maximum power of the product exceeds the limit specified in the new standard, SAR measurement must be carried out, and the test cost and cycle will increase accordingly.
2. The product has obtained the FCC ID certificate before the new standard, does it need to be updated now?
**New, and the certificate is valid.
3. The product is applying for FCC ID, how should I choose?
If you are in a hurry to sell, it is recommended to choose the old label, but you must obtain the FCC ID certificate before March 31.
Since March 7, for all products that meet FCC standards, Amazon has required sellers to upload certification materials in accordance with US testing requirements, otherwise they will be restricted from non-compliant sales according to US policies.
Today, the US certification body has also implemented new requirements, requiring the implementation of new standards from April 1, which has also virtually raised the threshold for sellers.
Therefore, we recommend that if sellers need to sell products before March 31, it is recommended to register in advance to avoid the new standard affecting your cycle and testing costs.For details, please contact 18148564512, Yang Gong
