UNITED STATES: FCC Allows Earlier Equipment Marketing and Importation Opportunities
September 28, 2021

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopts targeted enhancements that will modernize the Commission’s marketing and importation rules to allow radiofrequency (RF), equipment manufacturers, to better gauge consumer interest and prepare for new product launches. These steps will further the communications sector’s ability to drive innovation that will advance America’s global competitiveness and promote economic growth. The rules the Commission is adopting will allow manufacturers to better use these tools to quickly deploy new technologies and devices to consumers while ensuring that communications equipment subject to equipment authorization continues to meet the Commission’s stringent program requirements. Effective October 20, 2021, except for §§ 2.803(c)(2)(i) and 2.1204(a)(11), which contain information collection requirements that are not effective until approved by the Office of Management and Budget.

The Federal Communications Commission will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date for those sections.
