FCC Part 15 Radio Frequency Devices
Section 15.15

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the authority in the United States of America that creates and enforces the use of airwaves throughout the entire radio frequency spectrum. This group of documents contains the entirety of the FCC Part 15 regulations that concern unlicensed radio frequency devices. As with all government documents, this material is in the public domain and may be freely copied so long as the content is not changed. This copy is provided as a convenience for RF Cafe visitors.

                       TITLE 47--TELECOMMUNICATION
                            Subpart A_General
Sec. 15.15  General technical requirements.
    (a) An intentional or unintentional radiator shall be constructed in 
accordance with good engineering design and manufacturing practice. 
Emanations from the device shall be suppressed as much as practicable, 
but in no case shall the emanations exceed the levels specified in these 
    (b) Except as follows, an intentional or unintentional radiator must 
be constructed such that the adjustments of any control that is readily 
accessible by or intended to be accessible to the user will not cause 
operation of the device in violation of the regulations. Access BPL 
equipment shall comply with the applicable standards at the control 
adjustment that is employed. The measurement report used in support of 
an application for Certification and the user instructions for Access 
BPL equipment shall clearly specify the user-or installer-control 
settings that are required for conformance with these regulations.
    (c) Parties responsible for equipment compliance should note that 
the limits specified in this part will not prevent harmful interference 
under all circumstances. Since the operators of part 15 devices are 
required to cease operation should harmful interference occur to 
authorized users of the radio frequency spectrum, the parties 
responsible for equipment compliance are encouraged to employ the 
minimum field strength necessary for communications, to provide greater 
attenuation of unwanted emissions than required by these regulations, 
and to advise the user as to how to resolve harmful interference 
problems (for example, see Sec. 15.105(b)).
