§ 15.525   Coordination requirements.

   (a) UWB imaging systems require coordination through the FCC before the
   equipment may be used. The operator shall comply with any constraints
   on equipment usage resulting from this coordination.

   (b) The users of UWB imaging devices shall supply operational areas to
   the FCC Office of Engineering and Technology, which shall coordinate
   this information with the Federal Government through the National
   Telecommunications and Information Administration. The information
   provided by the UWB operator shall include the name, address and other
   pertinent contact information of the user, the desired geographical
   area(s) of operation, and the FCC ID number and other nomenclature of
   the UWB device. If the imaging device is intended to be used for mobile
   applications, the geographical area(s) of operation may be the state(s)
   or county(ies) in which the equipment will be operated. The operator of
   an imaging system used for fixed operation shall supply a specific
   geographical location or the address at which the equipment will be
   operated. This material shall be submitted to Frequency Coordination
   Branch, OET, Federal Communications Commission, 445 12th Street, SW,
   Washington, D.C. 20554, Attn: UWB Coordination.

   (c) The manufacturers, or their authorized sales agents, must inform
   purchasers and users of their systems of the requirement to undertake
   detailed coordination of operational areas with the FCC prior to the
   equipment being operated.

   (d) Users of authorized, coordinated UWB systems may transfer them to
   other qualified users and to different locations upon coordination of
   change of ownership or location to the FCC and coordination with
   existing authorized operations.

   (e) The FCC/NTIA coordination report shall identify those geographical
   areas within which the operation of an imaging system requires
   additional coordination or within which the operation of an imaging
   system is prohibited. If additional coordination is required for
   operation within specific geographical areas, a local coordination
   contact will be provided. Except for operation within these designated
   areas, once the information requested on the UWB imaging system is
   submitted to the FCC no additional coordination with the FCC is
   required provided the reported areas of operation do not change. If the
   area of operation changes, updated information shall be submitted to
   the FCC following the procedure in paragraph (b) of this section.

   (f) The coordination of routine UWB operations shall not take longer
   than 15 business days from the receipt of the coordination request by
   NTIA. Special temporary operations may be handled with an expedited
   turn-around time when circumstances warrant. The operation of UWB
   systems in emergency situations involving the safety of life or
   property may occur without coordination provided a notification
   procedure, similar to that contained in § 2.405(a) through (e) of this
   chapter, is followed by the UWB equipment user.
