  § 2.1033   Application for certification.

   (a) An application for certification shall be filed on FCC Form 731
   with all questions answered. Items that do not apply shall be so noted.

   (b) Applications for equipment operating under Parts 11, 15 and 18 of
   the rules shall be accompanied by a technical report containing the
   following information:

   (1) The full name and mailing address of the manufacturer of the device
   and the applicant for certification.

   (2) FCC identifier.

   (3) A copy of the installation and operating instructions to be
   furnished the user. A draft copy of the instructions may be submitted
   if the actual document is not available. The actual document shall be
   furnished to the FCC when it becomes available.

   (4) A brief description of the circuit functions of the device along
   with a statement describing how the device operates. This statement
   should contain a description of the ground system and antenna, if any,
   used with the device.

   (5) A block diagram showing the frequency of all oscillators in the
   device. The signal path and frequency shall be indicated at each block.
   The tuning range(s) and intermediate frequency(ies) shall be indicated
   at each block. A schematic diagram is also required for intentional
   radiators.

   (6) A report of measurements showing compliance with the pertinent FCC
   technical requirements. This report shall identify the test procedure
   used (e.g., specify the FCC test procedure, or industry test procedure
   that was used), the date the measurements were made, the location where
   the measurements were made, and the device that was tested (model and
   serial number, if available). The report shall include sample
   calculations showing how the measurement results were converted for
   comparison with the technical requirements.

   (7) A sufficient number of photographs to clearly show the exterior
   appearance, the construction, the component placement on the chassis,
   and the chassis assembly. The exterior views shall show the overall
   appearance, the antenna used with the device (if any), the controls
   available to the user, and the required identification label in
   sufficient detail so that the name and FCC identifier can be read. In
   lieu of a photograph of the label, a sample label (or facsimile
   thereof) may be submitted together with a sketch showing where this
   label will be placed on the equipment. Photographs shall be of size A4
   (21 cm × 29.7 cm) or 8 × 10 inches (20.3 cm × 25.4 cm). Smaller
   photographs may be submitted provided they are sharp and clear, show
   the necessary detail, and are mounted on A4 (21 cm × 29.7 cm) or 8.5 ×
   11 inch (21.6 cm × 27.9 cm) paper. A sample label or facsimile together
   with the sketch showing the placement of this label shall be on the
   same size paper.

   (8) If the equipment for which certification is being sought must be
   tested with peripheral or accessory devices connected or installed, a
   brief description of those peripherals or accessories. The peripheral
   or accessory devices shall be unmodified, commercially available
   equipment.

   (9) For equipment subject to the provisions of part 15 of this chapter,
   the application shall indicate if the equipment is being authorized
   pursuant to the transition provisions in § 15.37 of this chapter.

   (10) Applications for the certification of scanning receivers shall
   include a statement describing the methods used to comply with the
   design requirements of all parts of § 15.121 of this chapter. The
   application must specifically include a statement assessing the
   vulnerability of the equipment to possible modification and describing
   the design features that prevent the modification of the equipment by
   the user to receive transmissions from the Cellular Radiotelephone
   Service. The application must also demonstrate compliance with the
   signal rejection requirement of § 15.121 of this chapter, including
   details on the measurement procedures used to demonstrate compliance.

   (11) Applications for certification of transmitters operating within
   the 59.0-64.0 GHz band under part 15 of this chapter shall also be

   GHz and the 5.47-5.85 GHz bands must include a high level operational
   description of the security procedures that control the radio frequency
   operating parameters and ensure that unauthorized modifications cannot
   be made.

   (14) Contain at least one drawing or photograph showing the test set-up
   for each of the required types of tests applicable to the device for
   which certification is requested. These drawings or photographs must
   show enough detail to confirm other information contained in the test
   report. Any photographs used must be focused originals without glare or
   dark spots and must clearly show the test configuration used.

   (c) Applications for equipment other than that operating under parts
   15, 11 and 18 of this chapter shall be accompanied by a technical
   report containing the following information:

   (1) The full name and mailing address of the manufacturer of the device
   and the applicant for certification.

   (2) FCC identifier.

   (3) A copy of the installation and operating instructions to be
   furnished the user. A draft copy of the instructions may be submitted
   if the actual document is not available. The actual document shall be
   furnished to the FCC when it becomes available.

   (4) Type or types of emission.

   (5) Frequency range.

   (6) Range of operating power values or specific operating power levels,
   and description of any means provided for variation of operating power.

   (7) Maximum power rating as defined in the applicable part(s) of the
   rules.

   (8) The dc voltages applied to and dc currents into the several

   labels for controls and meters and sufficient views of the internal
   construction to define component placement and chassis assembly.
   Insofar as these requirements are met by photographs or drawings
   contained in instruction manuals supplied with the certification
   request, additional photographs are necessary only to complete the
   required showing.

   (13) For equipment employing digital modulation techniques, a detailed
   description of the modulation system to be used, including the response
   characteristics (frequency, phase and amplitude) of any filters
   provided, and a description of the modulating wavetrain, shall be

   manufacturer thereof shall have a Compliance Assessment Program
   Supplier's Declaration of Compliance and Summary Test Report or,
   alternatively, a document detailing how the manufacturer determined
   that its equipment complies with § 90.548 of this chapter and that the
   equipment is interoperable across vendors. Submission of a 700 MHz
   narrowband radio for certification will constitute a representation by
   the manufacturer that the radio will be shown, by testing, to be
   interoperable across vendors before it is marketed or sold.

   (21) Contain at least one drawing or photograph showing the test set-up
   for each of the required types of tests applicable to the device for
   which certification is requested. These drawings or photographs must
   show enough detail to confirm other information contained in the test
   report. Any photographs used must be focused originals without glare or
   dark spots and must clearly show the test configuration used.

   (d) Applications for certification of equipment operating under part 20
   of this chapter, that a manufacturer is seeking to certify as hearing
   aid compatible, as set forth in § 20.19 of this chapter, shall include a
   statement indicating compliance with the test requirements of § 20.19 of
   this chapter and indicating the appropriate M-rating and T-rating for
   the equipment. The manufacturer of the equipment shall be responsible
   for maintaining the test results.

   (e) A single application may be filed for a composite system that
   incorporates devices subject to certification under multiple rule
   parts, however, the appropriate fee must be included for each device.
   Separate applications must be filed if different FCC Identifiers will
   be used for each device.
