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) a Grantee Code; and (2) a 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 authorization of all radio frequency equipment.

The product codes are uniquely established by the Grantee to identify each product approved by a Telecommunications Certification Body. 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.

For information on how to obtain a grantee code, manage grantee code information (company name, address and contact information), recover a lost grantee code’s registration number, see KDB Publication 204515.
