Canada (ISED) - Radio Standards Specification Licence Exempt Radio Apparatus: Category I Equipment
The Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) of Canada issued the radio standards specification “Licence-Exempt Radio Apparatus: Category I Equipment”. Devices operating 24 – 24.25 GHz frequency band was previously certification exempt. According to the new specification, this equipment now has to comply with the new requirements to get access to the market of Canada.
|Frequency Bands (MHz)||Field Strength (mV/m)|
|Fundamental Emissions||Harmonic Emissions|
Devices operating 24-24.25 GHz frequency band that have previously been certification exempt, may continue to be manufactured, imported, distributed or sold, for the life of the vehicle where such device models are already installed.
However, devices installed on new vehicles must comply with the new specification.
The Equipment classified as Category I Equipment must have either a Technical Acceptance Certificate (TAC) issued by ISED’s Certification and Engineering Bureau or a certificate issued by a recognized Certification Body (CB) to get access to the Canadian market.
