[Code of Federal Regulations]
[Title 47, Volume 1]
[Revised as of October 1, 2008]
From the U.S. Government Printing Office via GPO Access
[CITE: 47CFR15.201]
[Page 801-802]
                       TITLE 47--TELECOMMUNICATION
                     Subpart C_Intentional Radiators
Sec. 15.201  Equipment authorization requirement.
    (a) Intentional radiators operated as carrier current systems, 
devices operated under the provisions of Sec. Sec. 15.211, 15.213, and 
15.221, and devices operating below 490 kHz in which all emissions are 
at least 40 dB below the limits in Sec. 15.209 shall be verified 
pursuant to the procedures in Subpart J of part 2 of this chapter prior 
to marketing.
    (b) Except as otherwise exempted in paragraph (c) of this section 
and in Sec. 15.23 of this part, all intentional radiators operating 
under the provisions of this part shall be certificated by the 
Commission pursuant to the procedures in subpart J of part 2 of this 
chapter prior to marketing.
    (c) For devices such as perimeter protection systems which, in 
accordance with Sec. 15.31(d), are required to be measured at the 
installation site, each application for certification must be 
accompanied by a statement indicating that the system has been tested at 
three installations and found to comply at each installation. Until such 
time as certification is granted, a given installation of a system that 
was measured for the submission for certification will be considered to 
be in compliance with the provisions of this chapter, including the 
marketing regulations in subpart I of part 2 of this chapter, if tests 
at that installation show the system to be in compliance with the 
relevant technical requirements. Similarly, where measurements must be 
performed on site for equipment subject to verification, a given 
installation that has been verified to demonstrate compliance with the 
applicable standards will be considered to be in compliance with the 
provisions of this chapter, including the marketing regulations in 
subpart I of part 2 of this chapter.
    (d) For perimeter protection systems operating in the frequency 
bands allocated to television broadcast stations operating under part 73 
of this chapter,
[[Page 802]]
the holder of the grant of certification must test each installation 
prior to initiation of normal operation to verify compliance with the 
technical standards and must maintain a list of all installations and 
records of measurements. For perimeter protection systems operating 
outside of the frequency bands allocated to television broadcast 
stations, upon receipt of a grant of certification, further testing of 
the same or similar type of system or installation is not required.
