The following is a non-exclusive list of measurement procedures that may be used when testing radio frequency equipment to determine its compliance with FCC rules. This list is provided as a reference tool to aid interested parties in locating measurement procedures. Any party making measurements to show compliance with the FCC rules should select the appropriate measurement methods as required and specified in the particular section of the FCC rules. For example, for Part 15 devices see Section 15.31. The FCC Knowledge Database (KDB) provides additional guidance on testing devices subject to the FCC rules.
