FCC Proposes Rules to Safeguard Integrity of Equipment Authorization Program

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is proposing rules to safeguard the integrity of its equipment authorization program, which ensures that wireless devices meet regulatory standards before being sold in the U.S. market. This proposal aims to prevent entities deemed national security risks from influencing the certification process. The FCC seeks to implement these rules in line with the Secure Equipment Act of 2021, which prohibits the authorization of communication equipment posing national security risks. The proposal sets criteria for telecommunications certification bodies and test labs, focusing on ownership and control thresholds to ensure national security standards are met. Additionally, it explores incorporating national security determinations from other government agencies into eligibility qualifications for FCC recognition.
