Foreign Certification Body (FCB)

Efficient market approval for the Canadian market

The competent authority for radio licensing in Canada is Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED). The technical requirements are in most cases identical to those of the USA and the tasks of the FCB for Canada are similar to those of a TCB.

The role of a FCB

An FCB has the power to submit and assess an application for approval of a product on behalf of ISED. Accordingly, an FCB is, analogous to the TCB in the USA, a certification body that approves certifiable equipment according to the accreditation scope and issues technical acceptance certificates.
