Products subject to certification are required to be uniquely identified by an identifier known as FCC ID. The FCC ID consist of two parts: (1) grantee code; and (2) product code.

The grantee code, as specified in Section 2.926, is a three or five character alphanumeric string representing the Grantee / Applicant for certified products.

* Grantee Codes that begin with an alpha character (A-Z) consist of three characters.

* Grantee Codes that begin with a number (2-9) consist of five characters.

* The grantee code does not contain the numbers “one” and/or “zero”. The grantee code is assigned by the Commission permanently to a company for use in the identification of radio frequency equipment authorized under the certification procedure.

The product codes are uniquely established by the Grantee to identify each product approved by a Telecommunication Certification Body (TCB). The product code can be up to 14 alpha numeric characters. Hyphens (–) separated by an alpha numeric character are permitted; consecutive hyphens (-) are not permitted.
