|How to Register (List) a Test Facility Per Section 2.948
In order to perform the testing for application for Certification under
Parts 15 or 18 of the FCC Rules, a test facility must be Registered (Listed)
with the FCC. To apply to be listed, the test facility must submit a
description of the facility as required by Section 2.948 of the FCC Rules.
The description will be reviewed and, if acceptable, the name of the
test firm and the particular facility will be added to the Commission's
list of test firms whose test reports will be accepted in conjunction
with an application for Certification of equipment under Parts 15 or
18. There is no fee required for this procedure.
The submission must include all the information specified in Section
2.948 for both the radiated emissions test site and the line conducted
emissions test site which must comply with the requirements of ANSI C63.4
