Keyword: Composite devices; DOC and Certification

First Category: Administrative Requirements
Second Category: Certification

Question:   If a composite device is subject to both the Certification and Declaration of Conformity (DoC) approval procedures, does the DoC compliance information have to be submitted with the Certification filing?

Answer:   Composite devices or systems operating under the provisions in Part 15 are subject to the approval requirements in Section15.31(k). If a composite device is subject to both Certification and DoC approval, the Certification filing should indicate that the device will also be DoC approved.  The exhibits for the label in the Certification filing should show compliance with the Certification labeling requirements and the DoC labeling requirements. Additional DoC requirements, such as the compliance information in Section 2.1077 are normally not required, but may be requested at anytime by the FCC or a TCB.
