The new version - 447498 D01 General RF Exposure Guidance v07 that is presently in the expired draft form 447498 D01 General RF Exposure Guidance DR04-44449, available at https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/comments/GetPublishedDocument.html?id=479&tn=377285, can be used while the review of the draft is being completed. The publication of the final version of KDB 447498 v07 is currently planned in October 2021.
The policies and procedures in KDB 447498 v07 must be used in their entirety along with any other associated revised KDB RF exposure procedures and policies (including FCC-TCB conference presentations).
The previous version 447498 D01 General RF Exposure Guidance v06 may also be used in the interim for compliance purposes, as long as the TCB submits to the FCC the Form 731 and the related granted application on or before March 31, 2022. In that case the previous v06 guidance shall be used in its entirety (i.e. no mixing of old and new procedures within each application filing).
All submissions of Form 731 and the related granted application by TCBs after the deadline of March 31, 2022 must use only the new procedures of 447498 v07. The only exception is for the case a grant application includes items subject to Pre-Approval Guidance (PAG; KDB Publication 388624).
Where TCB PAG applies, the previous 447498 v06 guidance (in its entirety) may be still used if the TCB has submitted to the FCC the required PAG KDB inquiry along with the fully-populated Form 731 application on or before the March 31, 2022 deadline. Only in this case, after the FCC has cleared the PAG, the TCB may grant an application that used the previous 447498 v06 guidance past the deadline.
