Intertek can help you attain FCC Part 68 Certification in less than half the time it takes the FCC.
FCC Part 68 is a Federal regulation in the United States that requires you to test and register your equipment with the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA) prior to its connection to the network. The tests designated by ACTA are designed to detect if your equipment presents any potential harm to the network.
As an Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB), Intertek is authorized by the FCC to grant certifications for all products within its scope of accreditation.

Additional FCC Regulations
In addition to Part 68, FCC Part 15 applies to most Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) and regulates the electromagnetic interference of the equipment. We are fully equipped to handle all your FCC requirements, including both Part 15 and Part 68. We can issue combined quotations for both Part 15 and Part 68 testing, thereby speeding up compliance. In Canada, comparable rules apply for which we offer comprehensive services.
In addition to testing to the requirements of Part 15 and Part 68 for U.S. market access, we offer compliance testing for Australia, Canada and Europe. Intertek is approved by the Australian Communications Authority (ACA) for the submittal of Australian telecom approvals including EMC testing and electrical safety testing and certification.
As an Industry Canada approved laboratory, Intertek can test a variety of equipment from voice frequency to ISDN and T1 designs for Canadian compliance. We offer the same benefits as our Part 68 program in the U.S. including design reviews, compliance testing, and the filing of all necessary paperwork with Industry Canada. We are also recognized by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) as a Testing Organization (TO) and a Certification Body (CB).
In addition to being a Competent Body for the European Union’s EMC Directive, Intertek is accredited for testing to these Common Technical Regulations:
