Attention Amazon Canada merchants! ISED is Canada's certification for wireless products, also known as ICID certification. Once the product has wireless function, it needs to be provided, otherwise the product will be forced to be removed from the shelves from September 30th !
Wireless products sold in Canada must be certified by IC . Therefore , IC certification is a pass and a prerequisite for wireless electronic and electrical products to enter the Canadian market. IC certification covers products including radio and television equipment, information technology equipment, radio equipment, telecommunication equipment, etc. The process and test items are similar to those of the FCC , and can generally be applied for jointly with the FCC .
What is ISED ?
Canadian ISED certification (formerly IC certification, also known as ICES certification), since 2016 , IC has officially changed its name to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada ( ISED ) responsible for the certification of electrical and electronic products entering the Canadian market. The original IC number was renamed ISED Number , but its expression on the label remained unchanged, still IC:XXXXX-YYYYYYYYYY .
ISED (IC) certified product certification standards
IT , AV category: ICES-003
Home appliances: ICES-003
Lamp type: ICES-005
Wireless: RSS 210 , RSS 310
Industrial , Scientific , Medical : ICES-001
Products entering Canada need to apply for IC-ID ( ISCE) certification, the required information:
1.Schematics circuit diagram
2. Block Diagram block diagram
6. Software and hardware version numbers
7. Product serial number
8. Canadian agent information
9. Fixed frequency software version number
Differences between Canadian IC and US FCC :
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission , US Federal Communications Commission ) is an independent agency of the US government, directly responsible to Congress.
The FCC coordinates domestic and international communications by controlling radio, television, telecommunications, satellite, and cable, and is responsible for authorizing and regulating radio frequency transmission devices and equipment other than those used by the federal government. Involves more than 50 states in the United States, Columbia and the United States to ensure the safety of radio and wire communication products related to life and property.
ISED is responsible for the certification of electronic and electrical products entering the Canadian market. As a government agency, it stipulates the testing standards for analog and digital terminal equipment, is responsible for the certification of electronic and electrical products entering the Canadian market , and stipulates that imported electronic products must pass the relevant EMC certification. Its responsible products are generally radio and television equipment, information technology equipment, radio equipment, telecommunication equipment, engineering and medical equipment, etc. Similar to the FCC in the United States , IC currently only has restrictions on electromagnetic interference. General regulations : Only EMI is mandatory , and the certification method is also the same as the FCC .
Overall: Canadian and US radio regulations are similar, and applying at the same time saves time and money.
The cycle required for IC certification I88I89IO727:
IC : 1 week (general electronics, issued by a third-party laboratory)
IC ID : 4 weeks (wireless products, issued by TCB agency)
