FAQ - Certification

What is FCC certification?

FCC is the abbreviation for the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC is responsible for rating personal computers and other equipment as either Class A or Class B. The ratings indicate how much radiation a personal computer emits: this rating process is often referred to as "certification." Almost all personal computers satisfy Class A requirements, which means they are suitable for office use. Class B machines, which are suitable for anywhere, including the home, must pass more stringent tests. Class B indicates that the machine's radio frequency (RF) emissions are so low that they do not interfere with other devices such as radios and TVs.

The FCC should rate computer components and systems before they are released for sale. The rating process is usually the responsibility of the manufacturer. For instance, before AOpen releases a new PC system for sale, the entire system is submitted to the FCC for rating. FCC rating (Class A or Class B) should be listed on the specification sheet or box of each product a manufacturer sells. Many customers, especially large corporate customers, will only accept FCC rated systems

What is CE certification?

CE certification refers to a product's eligibility to be sold in the EU, which is short for European Union. The trading region defined by the EU is called the European Economic Area (EEA). If a PC manufacturer wants to sell their products to any of the countries in the European Economic Area they must obtain CE certification: this law has been in effect since January 1996. CE certified products are identified by the CE Mark. A product bearing the CE Mark has been tested to all of the relevant standards that the EU demands. The purpose of CE certification is to form one body of product safety regulations that can be used to protect all the citizens living and working within the EEA. This harmonization of regulations allows manufacturers to sell products to all of the countries in the EEA with the only limitation being the requirement that each product carry the CE Mark.
