    p.3 footnote: It is necessary for the FCC to provide a greater degree of guidance of the acceptable spot-check limits to verify that a spot-check appropriately represents the original test data to establish a common ground for TCBs and Labs.Without some examples or guidelines of items considered viable, it compromises impartiality. For example, SAR within +/- 20 %, ERP/EIRP within 3 dB, etc. Also ensure that spot check data is provided for the worst case channel as determined and tested in the referenced data test report.

    Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Item 3)c) Spot Check Verification Data Section. We respectfully request the FCC OET Lab to consider providing additional guidance when the spot check test data is compared to the referenced test data. For consistency, it appears the KDB should indicate the specific criteria for determining when the spot check data is acceptable and therefore justify the reuse of the reference test data. In particular, we are suggesting that the FCC includes the acceptable deviation (or tolerance) between the spot check data and reference data for Radiated spurious emissions, ERP/EIRP, conducted output power, and SAR.

Note: It is important to understand that the staff guidance provided in the KDB is intended to assist the public in following Commission requirements and does not constitute rules. Accordingly, the guidance is not binding on the Commission and will not prevent the Commission from making a different decision in any matter that comes to its attention for resolution.
