ANSI C63.10 2020 Published


The American National Standard of Procedures for Compliance Testing of Unlicensed Wireless Devices, IEEE/ANSI C63.10 2020, has been published.

ANSI C63.10 is the U.S. consensus standard covering methods and instrumentation and test facilities requirements for measurement of radio frequency (RF) signals and noise emitted from unlicensed wireless devices (also called unlicensed transmitters, intentional radiators, and license-exempt transmitters) operating in the frequency range 9 kHz to 231 GHz.

At the time of this 2020 version publication, January 29, 2021, the version accepted by the FCC for wireless certification remains ANSI C63.10 2013, effective from July 13, 2016. The new version must first be incorporated by reference within the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 47, §2.910. Publication will often come with a reasonable transition period as defined in §2.950.
