EMC Testing

Scope of 2014/30/EU covers vast range of electrical and electronic equipment (appliances, systems and installations).  

What is the definition of electric toy? 

As defined in EN55014-1 and EN55014-2, the definition of toy is: A product designed for, or clearly intended for use in play by children under 14 years old and supply voltage below 24V AC/DC.

What EMC test should be covered for an electric toy? 

The tests contain:

For battery operated (B/O) product:  

  •  EN55014-1, Radiated disturbances test
  •  EN55014-2 (EN61000-4-3), Radio frequency electromagnetic fields test*
  •  EN55014-2 (EN61000-4-2), ESD test  

For AC mains product:  

  •  EN55014-1, Power disturbances test & Terminal voltage test
  •  EN55014-2 (EN61000-4-2), ESD test

RF Safety Testing

Common Test Standards:

EN 50566: 2017 (Above 30MHz near Body usage)

EN 62479: 2010 (No harmonized standard under RED can cover this range) 


FCC Testing

FCC part 15C applicable for both intentional and unintentional radiators, while 15 SDoC for unintentional radiator only. Definitions of those mentioned devices refers to FCC Part 15 section 15. 3

What documents should I provide before the testing for radio control toys?  

  •  Application form (Appendix A)
  •  Letter of Agency
  •  Certification Agreement   
  •  Confidential Request Letter
  •  FCC ID labeling artwork, size and location
  •  Packaging/removable label artwork (if applicable)
  •  Circuit Diagram
  •  Block Diagram
  •  User manual
  •  Technical Description
  •  Transmitting Power Tolerance

Is there any change on the FCC part 15 SDoC Label? 

If the device is so small that it is impractical to label it with the required information compliance statement), and the device does not have a display for electronic labeling, then the required information would be permitted to be placed in the user manual. The required information also be required to place either on the device packaging or on a re-movable label attached to the device.

FCC logo to be placed on the devices voluntarily.

Compliance Information

If a product must be tested and authorized under a SDoC, a compliance information statement shall be supplied with the product at the time of marketing or importation, containing the following information:  

  1. Identification of the product, e.g., name and model number;
  2. A statement, similar to that contained in § 15.19(a)(3) of this chapter, that the product complies with part 15 of the chapters; and
  3. The identification, by name, address and telephone number, of the responsible party, as defined in § 2.909. The responsible party must be located in US.  

Common Technical Requirement for RF Toys  

  • Conducted Emissions
  • Radiated Emissions
  • Transmitter Field Strength
  • Band Edge
  • Occupied Bandwidth Requirement
  • Radiated Emissions in Restricted Band

How can I design my FCC ID? 

An FCC ID, which should be printed in the following format with legible lettering.
