Question:   What are the FCC Rules for building and marketing of kits of products, which when completed are subject to the FCC Rules? 

Answer:   Section 15.25 defines the requirements for marketing of a kit for a TV Interface Device.  As described in Section 15.23, individuals are permitted to construct a device for personal use without seeking equipment authorization from the Commission, but it may not be marketed as a kit. All other devices subject to Certification (whether marketed as a Kit or not), must be certified under Subpart J of Part 2.
