Question:   What are the requirements for test sites used to make radiated emissions measurements?


Radiated emission measurements for devices operating under Parts 15, 18, and licensed radio service equipment are required to be performed, to the extent possible, on an open-area test site (OATS). Alternative test sites, such as semi-anechoic chambers and TEM waveguides, may also be employed. The following points need to be addressed when using radiated emissions test sites: (1) meet the applicable site validation requirements; (2) compile a description of the measurement facilities employed, as specified in Section 2.948; and (3) for test sites located in the United States, obtain a Compliance Testing Experimental License.

See attachment 414788 D01 Radiated Test Site v01r01 for additional guidance on the use of test sites for radiated emissions measurements.
