Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB)

Intertek Hong Kong is an accredited Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB) for US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide product certification service for Unlicensed Radio Frequency Devices to be used and sold in the United States of America market.

On December 17, 1998, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted rules for the establishment of Telecommunication Certification Bodies (TCB). A TCB is a private third party organization, which is authorized to issue grants, within its scope of designation, for equipment subject to the FCC’s certification procedure. Under these rules, a TCB has the authority to review and grant an application for certification to the FCC rules. The rules also established procedures for foreign TCBs under the terms of a government-to-government Mutual Recognition Agreement/Arrangement (MRA).
