Internet of Things Compliance: The CommLaw Group Publishes Revised 2018 Global Guide to Radiofrequency Equipment Regulation


New in 2018, The CommLaw Group has revised and updated its guide to compliance with equipment authorization laws around the world.

Now available for download, the Global Guide to Radio-Frequency (RF) Equipment Regulation covers rules in 13 major countries and jurisdictions, including the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, South Korea, and China.

The revised second edition of the guide incorporates all new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules implemented in 2017, making it a perfect new reference guide for companies seeking to update their compliance with a new Supplier’s Declaration of Conformity.

The guide also provides an overview of the new General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) that comes into effect this Spring in Europe and impacts any company collecting information about EU customers.

We are in the midst of explosive growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), as businesses of all kinds are rapidly realizing the value of connecting traditional products to the Internet.  Regulatory authorities around the world are taking note of this growth, and monitor the marketplace for non-compliance with equipment authorization rules.  Authorities can impose significant penalties on manufacturers, importers, and other responsible parties that supply non-compliant products to the market.

The guide contains concise, easy-to-reference summaries of the regulatory information you need to know in order to manufacture, import, and market your IoT devices around the world.  The guide’s country-by-country provide details about compliance in each country, such as:

  • what types of equipment are regulated;
  • who is the party responsible for regulatory compliance;
  • what are the equipment authorization requirements and how to achieve them;
  • equipment labeling requirements;
  • what types of equipment modification are permitted;
  • market surveillance by regulatory authorities; and
  • enforcement of RF equipment rules by regulatory authorities.
