QAI is recognized as a TCB by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and a CB (Certified Body) by Canada’s Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED).
Telecommunication Certification Bodies (TCB) are private, independent businesses like QAI that are authorized by FCC and ISED to prepare grants for wireless and telecom equipment. FCC and ISED authorize TCB’s to work with product designers and manufacturers to collect compliance information and make the certification process efficient.
Regulations exist for many telecom and wireless products including licensed and unlicensed radios in the US and Canada. These regulations often require certification or registration for the equipment prior to sale. This is where QAI can help. Our team of experts will offer guidance to determine which requirements are applicable to your product, develop a test plan, carry out testing at our state of the art facility, then walk you through the process to obtain approval from the FCC and/or ISED through our TCB program. Already have a compliant test report? No problem, QAI will review your test data and design documents towards your product approval. TCB certification is based on review of test results, technical design documentation, and various attestations.
QAI is a customer oriented company that has been operating certification programs for over 25 years. Our skilled staff will guide you through the certification process. We offer fast turnaround time when reviewing product submittals, provide you with prompt feedback and expert guidance on attaining certification of your products, offer accredited testing against a wide range of criteria, and have the ability to issue certification for compliant products and registration with the regulatory authorities.
