One of the biggest mistakes that many manufacturers make is forgetting that the FCC rules for equipment authorizations are laws, not engineering specifications. The assistance of a skilled, qualified legal professional can sometimes be vital in accelerating your company's speed to market as it transverses the expanse between prototype and authorized equipment for import or sale. Our firm represents many foreign and domestic manufacturers of radio frequency emitting equipment, ensuring that their devices comply with the technical specifications, rules and policies of the Federal Communications Commission. There are also times when informal internal FCC policies, although unsupported by law, can halt the processing of a manufacturer's application. We employ our expertise and the law to overcome these often unanticipated impediments.
